My best advice is go buy a new trash can and fill it with all satelite equipment ever made then set it out on the curb. Yes I am still in this up to my neck. Today is my last run at satelite tv on the bus. If it does not come through I am getting my wife and I a new set of reading glasses and be done with it.
Here is useful information that I have discovered over the last month of trying to get satelite tv on the bus. Dealing with 2 companies that know nothing of each other is the problem. Two Dish Network techs have come to the house and were amazed they make in motion satelite systems (anyone see where this is headed?). To save a long story I will get to the meat. If you plan on useing Dish then the model 322 box running 2 televisions will not work. Your box must be model 311 or older and you have to have 2 boxes (sometimes). Some NAS boxes will feed 1 receiver to run 2 TVs and some won't. I could not get an explaination as to why as they said they did not know why(from Tracstar).
SO I called Dish who sent the 322 out for free and told them both techs could not get it to work and that I wanted to exchange the 322 for 2 311s. They say not a problem that will be $300. I told them no and whittled them down to $50 for 1 311. Next day they did not honor that agreeement and wanted to charge $100 for both boxes. Of course the pissin contest started and 2 hours later my Dish contract was cut off. I guess I showed them huh
. Not a happy wife when I got home as her SOAPnet was not working.
Today Direct TV is going to install a box in the house and activate the two boxes that originally came with the bus. I know they are working they just need to be activated. I installed them as they were and turned them on for grins and could see it was transferring information they just would not show a picture yet. I guess the mesage I am trying to convey here is it might be a lot easier (as I have already been told by a lot of people) to use Direct TV for in motion satelite. I will report back this afternoon after the tech is done. Hopefully I will be kicking back watching the missed episode of Swords Life on the Line.
