Ok, I bought this Directv dish from an unnamed company with the word “Oasis” in their name, so I could take television mobile. You know, so I could get the programming I pay a ridiculous amount of money to receive, when I’m not at home.
Surprise, the single time I’ve gotten the damn thing to work is in my garage.
First, they give you a tool that’s supposed to squeal when you have it pointed correctly. I’ve had the thing pointed correctly numerous times and it still does not work.
Next, they give you a “military grade” compass. If that pile of shite was military grade, Washington would have still been trying to cross the Deleware. The thing points north wherever you turn it.
You have to reprogram your HD receiver so the thing even knows where you are. You must also contact Directv so they know where you are. Good luck if your dry camping or off in a remote region of the US.
Finally, the setup does not work with your RV unless you have cabling without any other connections. Meaning it won’t work without a dedicated RV connection.
You can buy a dish that automatically points so you can get HD programming. The issue is, it costs $1300!
Dish is more reliable and works with RVing much better.
