Hope this is the right place to ask .
I canceled service with DISH and was told the receiver didn't have to be returned, it's mine.
OK, but is there any use for it or should it just be thrown out?

If you live near Carson's Hill, California, you could use it, maybe. Otherwise, I'd toss the thing.

Being a natural born "maybe that'll be useful someday" hoarder, guess I'll add to to the stack of Big Dish receivers and descramblers or get smart and ditch them all

Thanks for letting me know for sure which pile it goes into.

You just didn't hit on any ideas that sounded tempting to me harry

You could always sell it on eBay. A quick look shows quite a few out there for sale (400+).

You could always do a little playing, and experimenting. You never know what might happen.
