I hate to drag the dead horse out and beat on it some more, but I’m trying to figure out if it’s feasible to get rid of Directv and go to Dish. Again… The house is no issue – hopper, couple joeys, done. The RV, which has ONE TV, appears to be a bigger problem. With Directv, I have an HR 24, AM21 and a Winegard 1518. I can record or watch ANY of the SD satellite or OTA channels any time – with a maximum of 2 being concurrently recorded (if I’m not watching a live channel). I can watch a previously recorded show while recording 2. And the 2 can be any combination of satellite and/or OTA channels. So, I can record ANY 2 “local” channels, 1 local and 1 satellite or 2 satellite. Or be recording 1 of anything while watching live of anything. So all the available OTA channels are available all the time, as are all the satellite channels. I’d LIKE more than 2 channels when on the road, but I could live with 2 if they were at least as flexible as I currently have. I’ve been told the old 1518 will NOT provide HD in the Dish system though it was originally sold as HD on Dish. Something apparently changed, though I don’t know, or care, what. SO, I’ll replace the Winegard 1518 with a Carryout 3 (or OTHER portable dome) – which I’ve been told WILL do HD in the current Dish world. But it specifically SAYS it will NOT work with a Hopper. Is there some OTHER, portable, HD, dome I should be looking at that WILL work with a Hopper? Not a $2000 roof mount that isn’t going to work where we often are – under trees. I’ve had an incredibly hard time getting consistent information from Dish (or their distributors) about what I use INSIDE the trailer to provide at LEAST what I’ve currently got with Directv. I presume Dish does the same thing Directv does, and if I get very far from home I lose MY local channels. Other people say they “just call Dish and they change the service address” so you get the locals wherever you are. That is FINE as long as it does NOT cause a problem for the system at home that IS recording local channels while we’re gone. With Directv when they change the service address on the account it breaks the home system recording. Can Dish, unlike Directv, do whatever they do so I get the local channels where I am WITHOUT screwing up the home system on my single account? ‘Cause if I have to have two accounts, there’s no way Dish will be cost effective compared to Directv. I read a couple discussions in here (and gotten a half different answers from Dish) and STILL have no idea which equipment is required to get what I’ve currently got in the RV… Wally only does 1 channel, no it can do 2. You need a 722. And so on. And what is DPP/DPH and how does it relate to a Carryout 3? Or does it? Is it something that makes a Carryout work with a Hopper? SO, HOW do I get at LEAST the same capability I currently have with Directv from Dish AND have it be more cost effective?
