If you don't care about sd local channels, get a tripod that will hold a 2" pole, a Slimline dish and a sl3 lnb. With this setup, you can't use a Genie or an H25, but any other Directv receiver/dvr will work. If you run only one cable, the dvr will only have one tuner available.

Well, depends what receiver you have at home?  tell us the model numbers of the receivers you currently have ?

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

Go to solidsignal. They have an rv setup with a single (SD) or triple (HD) lnb dish and tripod. Also comes with cable, just need a receiver.Prices are good.
