Dish question.

We have a new unit, which works fine when we get the pros over after moving south to north locations. Question is, it's a HDTV system and we we want to set it up as we travel back south for a day or so. Is there any gizmo available to align these units without getting carried away?

I finally bit the bullet and bought an automatic installed dish and sorry I didn't do that sooner. Once I get electric, and turn it on, it takes about 5 minutes for the dish to find the satelite and hello Fox News.

HD TV at least with DIRECT, requires being able to receive 2 Satellites from what I know. ***They tried to give us HD TV but couldn't find both Satellites from what I was told. Not saying that it WILL be a problem just that it COULD be.
We went back to standard reception for our Coach and for our Cabin, not sure that I would want the extra hassle while on the road. After saying this if it were my Home it may be different.
On our 1958 18' Traveler we will not be taking any kind of TV unless traveling for more than a few days....and then would seriously consider taking the Newell!

The Winegard does receive two satellites, and something three.
We've used Dish for years, I don't know about Direct.
