The Directv HD Satellite dish RV tripod kit from Installer Oasis is the perfect cost effective solution for taking your Directv satellite service with you on the road. If HDTV is what you're after while traveling, this is the ticket. The kit comes with everything you need to get your satellite TV service on the road. All you need is your satellite receiver, your TV, and 120V power and you'll be ready to watch TV.Please note: This product is harder to point than an older style Directv 18 round satelltie dish. Reason being that this dish receives up to 5 satellite at once. If you don't need HDTV on the road, we suggest looking at getting a DTV18SKIT. This dish will work on any Directv receiver, including HD receivers. It just won't receive HD channels.
This review is from: DIRECTV RVKIT18 18 Single Dish With Tripod And Hook Up Cables
Pros: The tripod is great.
Cons: The dish will not work with my H25-500 reciever. I messed with it for 2 hours and finally called a tech. Direct tv sent out a tech and even with his meter we could not get a signal. Sooooo.. I bought a slim line SLM and a 21volt power inserter he had on the truck, it fits the tripod and he had it aligned in 5 min.
Other Thoughts: Look up SLM alignment part 2 on you tube. It shows three different meters. I looked up the third one shown on the net and it lists for around $60.00.
