I use a 3 lnb directv HD dish on a small Xmas Tree stand that can be leveled, which receives from 3 Directv sats. I then use a small satellite strength meter that allows me to find Directv Sat 101.
It took a little practice, but I can now align the dish in less than 5 minutes, assuming a clear view to the sky. I bring my home sat receiver with me. This 3 lnb dish gets me HD. Some are happy with receiving only from one Directv satellite, which only gets you SD video, using a smaller dish that is even easier to set up.
It is like learning to back your TT - a little practice and it will eventually be easy.
