The Tailgater will work with Direct TV but not in HD. I have it and use Dish. I decided to not use the coax in the MH and wired it direct to the receiver. I think the picture is better that way. I store the Tailgater in the basement and can have it hooked up in a couple of minutes. I can also use the switch box that came with the MH to distribute the signal to the other TV using the video option. Of coarse you can only watch one channel at a time but not a big deal.
