I think I get what your your after.

You want a 3 lnb unit which is what your looking at from the link.

Do you have a receiver then ?

I take and use my receiver from my shop and use a used take off dish I got from an installer .
Then I mounted my dish on a work light stand.

One suggestion I would recommend would be this . Tailgater portable

Search (dish tailgater) in eBay.

Auto tuning dish is a lot easier for someone starting out.

The home receiver I have is a 222k. Its a dual tuner so I need a dish that I can handle two TV's on different channels.

I believe the difference between the Eastern Arc and Western Arc are the satellites it picks up. I live in Wyoming and I pick up 110, 119 and 129 for HD. I use a dish 322 dual reciever for my setup with a 500 plus dual LNB. Once you set it up a couple times it really is quite easy. I would say my setup time is less than 10 minutes total.
