We have a King Flex with Direct TV and really like it. I can't imagine anything much easier. Works perfect.

I took my recievers (4) from home and use a 722k from DISH in the front BR. that operates 2 TV's 1 in the front and 1 in the LR. and i use a 311 in the rear BR. which is only SD but what I watch i don't need HD. They said it wouldn't work but really does so yes you can oh the 722 has a built-in 500gig Harddrive the 211k doesn't have it you have to usb an outside HD to record shows my wife loves it. It takes approx. 20 mins. to set up and get signal the way i do it. I take the 311 out with a tv and rec. set it up and in mins. i am watching tv.

I have the King-flex and it works nicely, point the handle North, with a a clear view to south west and it finds the satellite.

Costs us $6.00 per month to permanently have a Direct TV receiver in our 254 DSX. All the receivers in the house are HD. We had an old standard definition receiver that still works fine. So for $72 per year we are good to go.

I call DTV and have the TT unit turned off while not using it. Just call to reinstate it.

King flex does support Direct TV but not HD.

Nothing on the receiver to do, put on channel 3, use DTV remote and enjoy. If it runs thru an entertainment system, then there's a few more steps.
