    I've seen this discussed many times on DBSTalk so I thought I'd share my findings from CES and the discussion I had with MotoSat.

    MotoSat makes auto aligning dish solutions from vehicles and RV's. They were showing the HD-SL5 (along with others) auto aligning system for DirecTV Ku 101,110, 199 and Ka 99,103.

    Average peaking time is 6 minutes although this varies depending on region.

    LNB: 5LNB, slimline LNB assembly
    Outputs: 4
    Reflector: Standard Slimline .7 meter
    Stowed Dimensions: 35.25"L x 32.5"W x 23.25"H
    Weight: 39.5 lbs.
    Movement: Elevation / Azimuth / Skew
    Motor Voltage: 12 VDC
    Controller: MotoSat NOMAD 2 and next generation compatible
    Operational Temp: -20F to 125F
    Windspeed Stowed: 140 MPH
    Retail Price: $2,295

    Units are already on order so visit MotoSat if you're interested.
    I have one more day at the show so if you have any questions, ask now. :)

    In the process.

    Smiddy - this rig has your name written ALL OVER IT! :)

    Use that credit line and make it happen.

    A bit off topic but I listened to a pair of speakers today that were $199,000 for the pair. Almost forget, you needed (4) 5,000 watt amplifiers to power them. Each amp was 40k.

    If they can make that kinda setup for auto aligning on a car, MAKE ONE FOR HOME! That way we all can quit getting these damn incompetent installers coming out and just hit a button to let it align itself!

    I don't see why you couldn't get one for your home.

    Sorry for being OT.

    Did you meet Tom, Earl, Stewart, and Doug by any chance. :)

    Unfortunately we have not connected... yet. :(

    Hoping to meet Tom but it looks like Earl is already on his way back to Chicagoland.

    I would LOVE to see a mobile forum here. I am an avid RV'er so this sort of thing is my bag, baby.
