When you guys just "plop" down your Tailgater, are you getting local programing, which also includes the major networks? Depending on my location, I have to switch LNB's. Yesterday, we arrived in Mason City, Iowa and I assumed the eastern arc LNB would be the right one. Bad assumption.
I had to switch back to the western arc LNB and move and re-align the dish. I also have to contact Dish (I usually use chat) and have my service address changed to get the right programing. I did not get a Tailgater because we have a Hopper and wanted to continue to use it.
