I have used one for the last three months. I have Dish Network. You need a single receiver not the dual one. You will lock in on two satillites, vs Direct TV with only one satillite. No HD service with the Cube. After you get used to scanning and tilting with the remote, it works very well (within 5 minutes). Service for an extra reciever is $5/mo. You do lose local channels while away from your home area, no biggie.
