I had DirectV on the roof and seems like everytime I turned it on I was under a tree or something... Went with the portable dish after that and do what ROB above did. Ran two RG 6 cables from the portable dish dual LMB - one to the living room area and the other to the bedroom area. Connected to SAT RCVRS at both locations then ran video out to the HDTVs... Like ROB_FLA says you can switch between SAT TV- OTA TV- PARK CABLE TV and never leave your easy chair using the TV REMOTE..
When I was using DirecTV on the road using my house account I had no problems whatsoever. Sometimes I had to call DirectV or go to their web site and reactivate my SAT RCVR I brought along from the house. Sometimes when I unplugged it it lost its activation. So be sure to have your acct info with you if plan on doing this. I taped all of my info on each SAT RCVR. DirecTv was very good folks to work with and you turn off the service a couple times a year for up to six months if you need to. I imagine DISH does all the same things...
Then when the National Broadcast digital TV came along from all of the local towns so I stopped bring out SAT altogether after that. Using my OTA BATWING antenna we pick up 6-36 digital full blown full screen HDTV just about everywhere we go here on the East side of the US... These are what we want watch anyway and when the urge really gets for the cable TV shows then we can always use the internet to downstream them. Even when we are at regular camp sites with CABLE HOOKUP we still use the OTA BATWING antenna to pull in the high def full screen HDTV signals form the local towns.. Works out good for us... Once you watch digital HDTV its hard to go back to analog TV like comes from the camp ground cable hookups.
