That tripod is worth it's weight in gold. I originally had the one DirecTV sent us, and what a piece of crap. Worked okay for a while, til I got a new tripod. We're like you- once you get the hang of pointing it, you can be set up and be watching the Cardinals game in about 10 minutes. Those expensive fancy meters- fine for some, but totally useless as far as I'm concerned. I had a cheapo that I paid ten bucks for, used once, and now I don't even know where it is.
