I'm also curious about this change of locating signal for Dish. Never heard anything like that. When did this happen and how old was your King Dome?

I have a Dish Tailgater from 2011 that still works fine.

Just curious.

Works great and a lot cheaper than a divorce.

We use the King Quest auto with Direct TV and the lock-in power injector/removal alarm unit. I've used it set up about 90 ft away and can't tell any difference from when it's roof mounted in an open CG.
I'm 70 years old, wear 2 hearing aids and trifocals, so HD/SD and stereo mean nothing anymore. Just give me a picture, a volume button and a Jack and Coke and I'm a happy camper! I do love my TVs!
It takes the King Quest anywhere from 3 to 10 min to lock on to the 101 and 119 satellites. It's the second thing I hook up next to the power.

PathwayX2 is great with Dish receiver. It powers off the receiver thru the coax. East and West arcs. Is excellent at finding satellites. Set it out, connect the coax, and follow the receiver promps.

PayhwayX2 with Dish receiver is excellent. It powers off the receiver thru the coax and is great at self locating satellites. Easy to set up and use.
