Yeah, what's with that? On the upside, it might save someone from purchasing another radio and antenna and more costly subscription. It's all based on your need, I suppose.

Holy Cow! I buy a local newspaper. DW says one of these years we will read the manual for the radio in the TT and get it turned on.

Slingbox

I have a slingbox. The only problem with it is that you have to have a good,
4g preferred, 3g will work, cell connection. I use a Verizon Mifi 4g for that purpose. The limitation, and it is severe, is that I only have a 5 gig limit on my Mifi. 2 or 3 hours of hi def, and I'm over the limit. So....

I bought a Dish Tailgater dome portable automatic dish. Dish and receiver cost me $450. Monthly is $7, in season. I shut it off during the off season. I plug the dish in, usually sitting on a plastic crate, wait ten minutes, and viola, have the same TV as at home. I added an external hard drive, so now it's a DVR. No aiming or setup required at the campsite.

Outside radio

My trailer has outside speakers. I wish it didn't. Unless camped away from everybody else, playing music in a campground should be outlawed if it can be heard in the next campsite. I consider it rude.

I play music outside sometimes but it's on a little GOGroove Move using my iPod. I store podcasts, music, audio books, etc. and I like to listen while easing back in the gravity chair. It's plenty loud enough to enjoy music without annoying others even close by. Plus it works on batteries or AC and they last a long time.

I even use a 1/8" male/male cable to attach the headphone out of my TV to my camper radio AUX input to get some better sound.

I was watching a hockey game while camping and the service was 3G. The picture on my phone was great but it wasn't as great on the TV, but it was still watchable. The picture comes in a lot better if you have wifi.

And for picture proof, here's a picture of my taking a picture of the my 40" TV. lol
Thanks. I will have to see if I can borrow one of those cables for a test run, since I have a 4, but I think it will work.

Can you give me some more info on this? Do you need to have a full time subscription at home to, or just this reciever? Did you have to have a dish and the box I guess? I used to have a tri pod system in my TT before it was stolen, and looking at options to replace it. Do you have a link to the plan? Can you get local channels too?
