I haven't actually used my portable dish yet, so I don't know if this will be helpful, but thought I'd pass it on...
Someone (I think on this forum) told me that to get good satellite reception in the bedroom or in the basement TV connection you need to run a cable from the satellite connection to the "aux" jack and then to your TV.
As I said, I haven't actually tried this yet but figured I'd pass it along in case it was helpful.
