It won't work while in motion and it isn't a dome but it will receive much better than a dome antenna, it is automatic, and it will allow Directv HD with a standard home type receiver. It supports the new genie and 3D HD TV.

So you can use your home receiver and you can get NFL Sunday ticket to watch any football games available.

So which traveler dish are you referring to? Maybe I missed it.

Ok I see it. It is the SK-SWM3 DIRECTV Slimline. Yes that appears the choice I would need to go with. Thanks.

May want to check Amazon.com once you are ready to purchase. We got ours (Carryout) $150. less than CW was asking and free shipping over a year ago. Not HD but we find no difference in picture quality on smaller screens.

If your screen resolution is less than 19201080, HD makes no difference, because the television would down-convert an HD signal to match the screen resolution anyway. Doesn't matter if it's a 22" screen or a 42" screen.

A non-HD signal displayed on a 1080 screen looks grainy because signal resolution is less than television screen resolution. So it may seem counterintuitive, but if you want the best picture quality from a non-HD satellite system, step down to a (less expensive) 720 television rather than a 1080 television. That way, the signal received matches the screen resolution available regardless of the actual diagonal measure of the screen.

And 720p and higher is considered HD, at least by the cable companies.

I didn't know that. Do satellite TV providers also consider 720p to be HD, or just 1080p?

Well SD is 480i which is absolutely horrible because of the low resolution and the interlaced picture.

720p is the first level of what is called HD, then 1080p for Blu-ray resolution HD.

Directv uses mp4 compression on the new receivers and offers 1080p for most HD channels. However a lot of HD channels are 720p and almost all of Dish's HD is 720P.
