Bring-along receiver

Am I to assume that I can pick up the receiver that I have at my MI summer cabin (DirecTV) and take it into my AS with the proper dish up above and pull the signal right in? How about internet service? I have the same service from HughesNet.

I would be nice if I could keep the service going on the road. Florida winter home has cable, so I'm out of luck with that one.

Frank

Hi Frank,
I'm still trying to figure it out but, I think you should be able to take your receiver with you on your AS, but may not be able to get local channels. I assume the satellite internet would work too, but I am not sure.

I have a Dish Network receiver in the shop that I put in the AS when I travel without any problems. I can't get network stations once I travel 75 miles east from the house. However, I don't consider that any kind of loss.

Adding Dishnetwork to our Airstream

I was in the process of asking a question when our over active rat terror jumped in my lap and punched either "return", "delete" or scramble. So I will try again.

I have the system set up in the driveway by the Airstream. I am using a Dish 500 dish from previous home use, two digital LNBs p/n 214-5100-402 and our DP301 receiver from the house.

So far so good. Everything hooks up correctly. The cables all work the azmuth and elevation are set. (I used a satellite finder)The "check switch" is redone to set it for the new set up instead of the old setup in the house. And I am receiving a signal and picture from satellite 119. Now the hard part (for me) how do I get satellite 110 to engage at the same time, without screwing up (technical term) what I already have. I saw, somewhere in the mists of the internet, an instruction, but of course it has disappeared. And took its bookmark with it.

Any info would be appreciated.

thanks, bill b.
