I installed a directv dish. I could never get anything on the digital antenna anyway. Better picture, none of that digital pausing, and pixelation. I just added the receiver on to my account, just about $60 in the receiver and $15 for the tripod and dish from the flea market. the dish one of those folding ones that has it's own case that fits the tripod and dish in. So I converted to a satellite antenna for less than $100. That's what I did to my camper today...

When I'm retired-retired, a sat dish with a DVR will be on our must-buy list as we'll be GONE as much as possible!!

I think it's pretty cheap if you're already a Dish customer with home service.

Going to be in the 70's for the next couple of days so we are packing a few things into the RV for a couple days or more at Cleburne state park, about a 45 minute ride and ready to roll.
