Dennis, glad to hear you have the system working. Just for the record, I think the TracStar is the best dome system out there. I had one on my last coach and wish I still had it. I now have a KVH and it just doesn't work as well.

As far as the KingDome, it is a knockoff of the TracStar and works well, too.

My TracStar has been working flawlessly, but every time it rains even light rain my wife misses her shows (you guys know what that means!) so I have been thinking about either adding an HD dish or replacing the dome with an HD dish - I read the large HD dish is much, much less susceptible to loosing the signal during rain. I am interesting in hearing WOG members experiences with this issue and any recommendations as to brand, type of dish etc AND thoughts on keeping both the dome in-motion and HD dish. Thanks

I've got 2 TV's hooked through a Winegard Travl'r. Directv HD on both. Not in motion but works fine when the line of site is not blocked by the trees. Directv at home also. If it rains hard enough I'll lose it for a few minutes, but it doesn't happen enough to bother us. DVR still works

Thanks Kip. I'll check out the Winegard. Has any body heard or have experience with having both systems and switching between them...in motion dome and large HD dish?

I had a Winegard Trav'ler installed at Q, I'm blown away by how well it works. We use Dish network. BTW, after a move we call Dish and give them the new zip code to receive local channels.

Dennis, are you DirecTV or Dish? No experience with Dish but it would be a real pain to switch DirecTV between HD and SD. Full reprogramming of the receiver each time, and if you get a Genie for HD it can't be used with an SD dish at all.

I have had the Winegard Travler for dish and it is excellent. Easy and idiot proof. Push one button and it is done.

My 93 does not have a current dish and I am considering RFMogul because because with it, you can change from dish to direct by swapping the LNB head and changing software. With the Travler, you basically have to buy a new dish.

The Travler is great. PPL had the best price and installation is easy. Basically plug and play.

Richard, I have the RFMogul sat finding equipment on a old motostat dish. It works great. I love how it finds the satellites and then optimizes the signal between sats. And that's in HD. I have a 4K tv and all is good.
The guys at RFMogul know their stuff.

Thanks all. I have Direct TV and Don you are right about having to switch everything over on the receiver...I thought about this after I posted..thus not a good plan to try and have both systems. I guess I will just give up the in motion which we almost never use while driving, in favor of not loosing the Sat. with every light rain.
