    no, you cannot use dish tv set in place of airtel because both stb having different programing for their services. you can use it but it is verry difficult to set and it is illegal as well.

    Nopes, it won't work. you have sell your existing dish STB and buy a new airtel STB

    Reason:
    Dish tv uses MPEG-2 and Airtel uses MPEG-4.
    so you can't use a MPEG-2 device to decode a MPEG-4 signal.

    To all repliers, You have not read the question properly.

    krishn, wants to use his old DishTV dish+lnb with his new Airel STB.

    The DishTV STB is not in question.

    In my opinion, this will work.

    Reciving dish and LNB costs not more than Rs. 500.

    Ans in_msz is right. If you switch to new provider, they may not give any rebate for existing dish+lnb. They will claim that it will not work.

    And if you wish to sell the old dish tv connection, the purchaser will require the dish/lnb as well.

    Yes in my views The Dish LBN will work with Airtel STB just point it in the right direction. LNBs work at same voltage and signal strength.

    Yep it would work, But STB+Dish+LMB are sold in bundle.

    its like looking for single shoe, instead of pair.

    Hope you got my point

    I have deleted the above post. This is typical of post going offtopic.

    @sudarsan001, You need to follow forum rules and etiquette (see Announcement). You question is valid but this thread is not the proper place.

    As far your query is concerned:

    - there are not too many Airtel Digital subscribers to answer your question
    - you can easily login to their website and check for your self
    - finally you can call their customer care center

    Hope you understand.
