Ahhh, yess, the 37 foot man cave. Although I don't watch TV in mine I do keep the fridge running to keep my beer cold in the summer when I am out working in the garage

During the summer I'll turn on the TV in the evening and watch, well sleep through some great TV. That beer is sounding really good about now.

So I have a different question along the same lines. I have direct tv as of this year and was planning to take a box with me in the 5er. I have a dish and am set up but having a problem.

The two satelite dish I use are different so the one on my house is a new SWM they call it and the 5er one is a regular 18-20 oval. Anyone know if the reciever (basic non HD) setting has to be changed for the different dish to work.

I hook my home dish to the 5er and my reciever works, if I hook the portable dish it doesnt.

In the set-up there is a screen where you pick the type of dish you are using. I'm sure it makes a difference. It will usually show the number of LNB as well. This is the software built into the receiver. Just follow the set up instruction after changing the type dish you are using and you should be good to go.

After 30 days of no power and signal from the dish the box loses it mind. You can actually "refresh" your box from your laptop and save yourself a long wait on hold with DirecTv. I Have this problem all summer with the rv's box. A lady at DirecTv finally told me how to do it online. Go to https://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/mydir...horization.jsp

Use this link, log into your account, pick the box in the rv and send the refresh signal. You are back in business before you could get through half the prompts on the telephone.
