Oops! Meant to say service address. If you take a home unit with you, you don't have to change the service address to get the better picture. You just reinitialize the receiver by going into setup and re-initialize the receiver by entering the zip code that adjusts the dish aim with new skew and angle settings in autoseek between the receiver and dish (yes they do 'talk' in binary to each other). When you get home you repeat the process to retweak your receiver to the home area settings.

What is that special RV phone number? It seems my RV dealer kept the coupons and other data you mentioned. Cannot get Tailgator to get satellites. Mine is right next to one that works perfectly but mine loses signal every 10 minutes.

I just sent you a message as well. Hopefully you'll get up and running without interruption soon!!

Just got the DISH Tailgater today, plugged it into a house TV to make sure it worked before I try installing in the Coachmen. Works great.

Hooking it up to the RV tomorrow, I hope. I believe I have co-axial cable from the DVD player to the TV. It seems to me the best thing to do is take the co-axial input to the DVD player and plug it into the Tailgater receiver as satellite input and plug an HDMI cable from the receiver into the HDMI on the TV in the living room. Then use the TV inputs to select co-axial or HDMI, when I want to switch between the DVD player and the Tailgater. Should I get some kind of HDMI splitter and try running a long HDMI cable to the bedroom? I'd just buy another DVD player for the bedroom.

Any thoughts?

OOPS,

Just saw the link to the Amazon.com : Actiontec My Wireless TV WiFi / HDMI Multi-Room Wireless HD Video Kit : Electronics

For about $200 I'm going with this.
