I need help, DW and I are getting a DISH NETWORK or DIRECT TV for the RW.
WHICH DO YOU LIKE?
We will be west of Mississippi 99% of time.

We are going with DirectTV. It's what we have at home and I like the Genie where I can record 5 shows and watch on any of the TV's. We have 3 in our GK, so I wanted to be able to watch any show that was dvr'd on any TV. I don't watch much live TV. We also did the tripod instead if roof mount.

I've had DTV and now have Dish. We had no problems with DTV. At the time, it was about having a television in the kitchen (at home) without a box. We were able to do it with Dish.<div id="LCS_C4CFC0DE_134F_4466_B2A2_FF7C59A8BFAD_commu nicati&#111;nDiv">

Now, we will be trying the Sling. The Sling allows us to get Dish from away. The Sling utilizes the satellite Dish from home.

Right now I have an app on my I-Phone. I can watch live television or anything that I've DVR'ed through the Sling.

As Sharon stated she appreciates the "Genie" from DTV. I believe the "Hopper" from Dish is similar.
I do miss being able to get six or eight stations on one screen and then seeing which one I want. Dish does not offer that.

We use the Winegard SK 3000 antenna forDirect TV mounted to the roof of our 36RL. It automatically raises up and finds the satellite while I do more important things like open a cold one! We use Direct TV at home so we don't pay for two systems. If we need an extra box for the outdoor set, we just grab one from a spare bedroom at home.

We have same as Jeff... Winegard SK-3005 DTV HD auto seeking roof-mount dish. You need one cable per receiver with this dish.

Winegard just upgraded this model to SK-SWM3 which requires only one coax cable and splitter for multiple receivers.

We have DTV at home, but also purchased another HD-DVR and HD receiver for the Redwood so we don't have to dismantle our home theater cabinet before & after every trip.

We went with Direct HD TV and we’re going to stick with the tripod setup. This way we can always get a signal.

X3 on Dish with an SK 1000.

Dish has the Hopper/Joey that does everything the Genie does.

I have a 2015 gk also and use direct tv with remote tripod but Iam unable to use any of the satellite connections in the side compartment. I have had direct tv techs to put transmitters on the lines but they do not connect to living room tv. I am presently using a flat cable through the window. any suggestions as to where the connection problem might be.Thanks
