rj, your explanations have been so helpful to me that I'm close to pulling the trigger on a system to receive DirecTV HD in my Wildcat. I already use DirecTV at home, use an HR44-500 Genie receiver/HD DVR in my family room and C41-700 mini-Genie client receivers in two other rooms. I plan to move the Genie and 1 mini to the trailer before each trip. I have a compass and bubble level app in my iPhone iOS and plan to download a cheap satellite "locator" app to my phone.
Here's hoping my trailer coax system is wired something like you describe. The trailer is a 2015 Wildcat which has Sat1 and Sat2 (plus Cable) inputs in the utility part of the basement (I see that I won't need both Sat-ins with my SWM system but it gives me some hope F.R. rigged it for modern sat. service). In my main room, I have a coax running from a grommet in the wall to the TV's ANT/CABLE connection - plus an unlabeled coax connector in a wall plate (next to a secondary 110v outlet) on the right side of the TV cabinet. In the bedroom, I have a Winegard wall plate with coax connections labeled Aux/Sat and TV.
I plan on assembling my own satellite antenna tripod using PVC - have seen such in campgrounds. Now, would you care to critique the following package for the antenna setup? DirecTV Kaku SWM3 SWM 3 LNB Slimline Ka KU Dish SL3S MPEG4 HD 4way New Satellite | eBay
I hereby state in public I will not sue you based in your opinion!
Thanks for your past help and in advance for any future help.
