We bought a rental house that had two Dish receivers and a dish for the
roof. We used them for awhile but now we are about to throw them away, does
anyone know if these have value to anyone, or maybe Dish Networks?
Not really. If you do a search on eBay, unless they are the Tivo-like of
HiDef receivers, they go for about 30 or 40 bucks at the most. The problem

two coworkers of mine each sold their units on eBay and each got around $275
(these are not the type with the recorder built in)
others without that specific chip are as good as junk, for the reasons that
