i gues my question is how do even setup the dish do i need software and a laptop to setup the dish because when i hookup the cable to the reciever all the dish does is spin looking for a satellite.

I would strongly suggest you go here first. Click on the "Manuals" tab and you will find the installation and user guide manuals for this dome. You should find the information you want there. The dome setups are usually independent of the receiver setups, other than having to define the dish type in the receiver setup. Since you say the sat dish just seems to keep going it is not finding what it is looking for in its internal setup. That needs to be complete before the receiver setup.

And, just so you know they are only touting this dish for HD on the DISH network. The kvh site only mentions SD reception for DirecTV signals.

It seems that this dome was really intended for a DISH setup, not a DIRECTV setup.

The tracvision dome setup was made to handle BOTH directv and Dish network.
It is mainly a standard analog signal dish
It has the ablity to decode HD on Dish but will not decode HD on DTV..

The main thing that needs to be done when first setting up the tracvision, is to make sure that the small on board computer is set for the correct service.

If it is set for dish, you will not lock on DTV.

well if he upgraded his receiver, the dome is already set correctly

if he changed service or has never had the box in the rv, you have to check what the dome is setup to
