DirecTV Satellite Receiver

I have a Jayco Whitehawk 24RDB which has the entertainment center that separates the living area from the bedroom. We are looking at getting a satellite for the RV and would like to use one of our current HD receivers from the house in the RV. I know this will work but my problem is space. The cabinet that holds the AV equipment is quite small. The receiver is 15" wide and 11" deep. The cabinet is only 14 7/8" wide and 9" deep.

I was wondering if anyone else has ran into this problem and how you worked around it? I can get a new SD receiver from DirecTV which will easily fit but I will have to pay the monthly fee for another receiver that will only get used a few times a year.

Thanks for the help,
Dale

Can you stand it on end? with front tipped toward the opening so it can see the remote?

That is a great idea. My only problem is the receiver is about 1/4" too wide for the opening. I would have to cut the opening to even get it in. I think I will take it out there and try to do a test fit to see if it is even possible. All of my measuring says no
