I am new to the Direct TV deal as well and have an RV set in one location. I cannot get a straight answer from the Direct TV folks so I am glad to find this site. I have 5 boxes, one HD, and 4 reg. and have a Slimeline Satellite Dish SL3S4NR2-02 at home in So Cal. My property is in So. Oregon. What I want to know is if I take one of my non-HD boxes and buy the same exact Dish I have at home, will I able to get reception in Oregon, or anywhere else for that matter? Besides the Dish is there anything else I need,etc. What kind of channels will I get? The same as my pakage at home? My relative has a Dish set up there already but I know it is the not the same model. Will that one work or do the rec. and dish need to be the same match? Thanks.
