We have the same system on Dish. You DO have to have a clear shot of the southern sky, which we've found is hard to do if you like camping anyplace with trees. When it does work it's great! We get HD, and if we are within 300 miles or so of home we get our local stations as well. The set up is easy; as soon as you connect power to the Winegard it starts adjusting itself. I do have the app to check the satellites positions, highly recommended, as is a compass app. I run the coax from the dish to the sat connection on the outside of the TT, then connect the sat output under the TV to the Dish box, and the box to the TV via a HDMI cable.
