Location for Dish receiver

We have a 2014 surveyor sport sp220. I am thinking of getting a tailgater satellite. Would like ideas on where to put receiver on entertainment center.
Can't seem to find a space large enough.

Having same problem if yours is the same as mine I was think of taking the panel out above the stereo and mounting a small receiver in there.Click image for larger version

I lowered the TV slightly and cut a hole just above the TV for installing the Dish DVR. After cutting the hole, I mounted a platform that extends out the back so front is flush with TV. Works great.

Nice. How do you get into the cabinet to switch the antenna booster off and on?

Unfortunately with the tailgater your limited to the receivers you can use including there uhf model.

I use a dish on a tripod or a wingard carryout "similar to the tailgater" then I can use dish networks "uhf" reciver and I can mount it in the basement of the fiver out of the way.
Since the remote doesn't "need" to see the receiver to change channels or turn on or off it's tucked away out of sight.

Good luck!

Hydro I like the fireplace where did you get it and how did go about hooking it up?

Fireplace looks good. Might have to look into that.
