No, mpeg-2 is video compression and mp3 is audio. mpeg2 is the compression
format used for dvds. The files you downloaded may or may not have been

I can almost promise you, if there is a local group, and you offer the complete
satellite system, you will have a line of people willing to do everything to get
this out of your yard, even cutting the pole off.

I just got rid of one of those myself, it was filling up the back yard of
our 1908 handyman special.
At least in our case, the dish was owned, not leased from the satellite
service. That was pretty common with the full-sized dishes. So we were
free to get rid of it as we pleased.
In my case, the whole thing was bolted together with stainless bolts,
mostly quarter inch, some half inch, and two big one inch bolts on the
pivots. So I just spent an hour with a socket wrench and had it in a
pile of pieces all small enough to fit in garbage cans if I'd wanted to
do it that way. Instead, the junk hauler who was getting rid of some
remodeling debris took the dish parts, too.
Before tearing it apart, it did briefly occur to me that if I turned it
upside-down, it would be plenty strong for the roof of a gazebo....
