I think we will need more information. So, I can't exactly help you with the Dish network, but I do use the Winegard. If it works at your house, you kind of have me stumped. You are doing the general things like making sure it has a clear sky to the south (directv is south, and I am making an assumption dish is as well), meaning no trees or mountains in the way? I have to go through the setup for directv after getting the satellite to lock on every time I get to a campground. I have had one major issue in the past - the cable that goes from my trailer to the satellite was marginally broken and would not hold the satellite at a locked in position. I first thought the satellite would keep the lock and I could just remove the cigarette adapter away. It worked forever, but then started to have problems. It turned out that the shorter cable that I bought was messed up and that was what was keeping the satellite from holding the lock. I swapped back to the long cable that came with the satellite and everything works correctly. I e-mailed winegard and they said a small amount of power from the directv box holds the satellite in the locked on position. What exactly is not working for you? It doesn't ever complete the setup? You can hear the satellite continually moving and never lock on?
