Easy Affordable DirecTV on the go

This is my DirectTV Satellite set-up. Very easy and very affordable. Note, I have modified the LNB Arm to be folded in for more space. All the units can be purchased on line, for about $300. I have the service at home, so I only pay for the extra HD Receiver. Or take the one from home. I hope the pics are self explanatory. But I'll be glad to answer your questions. Enjoy!Click image for larger version

More I'd have to carry I used my MS Surface, ATT MIFI and a wireless connection to the TV via the Direct TV app. Works for us and I don't have to haul the satellite.

How are these comments relative to the OPís post? The OP took the time to post his solution for DirecTv SATELLITE, which is helpful for those who are interested in satellite, and these comments have absolutely nothing to do with satellite.

The OPís solution is much more versatile for receiving DirecTv than the methods you have suggested where you are required to have a good internet connection. While the App he mentions requires an internet connection, it doesnít require the amount of bandwidth that streaming requires. Besides, the App isnít essential for his application, so there really is no need for any internet connection whatsoever.

Before shooting down the OPís idea by posting what you think is better because thatís how you do it, why donít you just consider thanking him for the advice and move along ó or just say nothing at all? Perhaps you could just start your own thread about how you do it so people can then let you know whatís wrong with your idea.

Also, it would be friendly and polite to welcome this new member to the forum.

Just sayiní

Welcome.

Mzodarg
Great suggestion. I've been thinking of switching wireless and home internet carriers. I may try your route.

We have a winegaurd , and use the box from house , standard no hd. I put the sat location app on our tablet , some time's trees get in the way and if I can find a hole I can at least get 101 sat . I heard that direct may stop standard TV and only have hd . That would leave a lot of people with unusable equipment . Us rv people would not be happy . That would be a direct mistake .

Weíve been Directv customers since 1995. For this mistake, we switched to DISH. HD is included. Cheaper to use since we now use streaming only at home.

My setup is similar except I use dish pointer pro app. and I replaced the nuts on the dish with wing nuts so no tools are required.
