Hi -- there are a number of threads returning if you do a search just on the word Qube. Please let us know your experiences if you go this route.

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.
Good luck.

I have used it for 6 mo. w/Direct tv works fine, also use it at home, built a fixed base that I set it in and just have to tweak it. Most people are afraid of the theft issue, as it is easy to walk away with. I echo James remarks.
