Traveler conversion from Direct to Dish

Recommended Posts

Just finished a conversion for a friend and doing another soon as they wanted to ditch Direct. 
Thought an update on this might help with future searches  

Was a fairly simple process.  
 

Call Winegard tech support and they walk you through checking the direct traveler and programming box to see if it’s possible. Verifying model antenna and software in box.  Order new LMB arm with Harness and a new reflector. They will confirm the P/N req. 

The cost for their kits were $279 plus tax and shipping  this was from Winegard  

The conversion was simple and had great instructions  

Final step was a little tricky with the way to program the box but was fine  

Found 110, 119, and 129 first time  

They kept it simple with a couple of Wallys setup and activated with Dish outdoor Pay as you go account.   

Did learn if activating two Wallys, each needs to be activated on the # 1 receiver cable then moved to other location as receiver 2. 

This link I found on a few searches here was very helpful.
