DISH NETWORK or DIRECT TV.

We are looking at going to one of the two, but don't know what dish to buy...the one that works for the chosen network or one that is able to work with both. The cost seems a bit high for the combo one but could be worth it...we just don't know. Any suggestions?

As bad as I hate to agree with FT Turbs, I do.

Direct tv

Direct TV and the FLEX portable antenna, get a signal anywhere and only need to get one satellite not two like the other brand.

We have a dome dish that does either so we can change from Dish to Direct without buying another dish. No problems with either. Just switch to get cheaper rates when we want to.

We have had great luck with Direct and the first gen Carry out. Just set it down, plug it in, wait a few min and watch TV. We dropped Dish because they were always dropping our favorite channels.

Hi Dish Tailgater easy to set up. All you need is one coax cable to power the tailgater and get the signal from the tailgater. I use a Vip211k receiver for the trailer this unit is SD and HD capable. I have the Dish Hopper at home and can watch all the home channels I subscribe to on the Vip211k receiver. I have also added a 2 gigabit Western Digital desktop hard drive to the Vip211k receiver for a one time fee of $40. to make this a DVR receiver. The good thing about this setup is that you don't have to pay for a DVR rental ever. The set up is easy and is displayed step by step on the television each time you set the system up in a new location. The big thing is you need a clear sky to the south (no trees) or a hole through the trees to the south.

Hope this helps Tim
