Does anyone have any idea if it is compatible with the satellite on the roof and if so is there anything that I need to do extra????
Someone at Camping World mentioned to me something about the need for a B band but I got no definite info on that or what that even means...

What I can tell you is that if you have a dome antenna you will be able to fully utilize your DVR (if it's setup for that) but you will never be able to receive the DirecTV high-def (HD) programming. No dome can, but you will get all of the DirecTV SD programming.
If you have a simple manual crank up open faced antenna with a single LNB, the same rules as above apply.
In order to receive the DirecTV HD programming you will need an open face, multi-LNB such as the ones made by Winegard, MoSAT Systems and RF Mogul or a similar antenna that is mounted on a large tripod and manually pointed as you move to each new location.

We have a Wineguard and I am sorry that we don't hava a double cable up on the roof so that we can utilize the dual band but for now I will be happy to use the single. It is not an HD dvr.
I did talk to a tech at Ocala's Camping World and he said it should just be a simple change out from the regular receiver to the dvr...was glad to hear that.
And I did talk to a DirecTv tech who was very familiar with the rv set up and he said just change it out and make sure I connect to antenna #1 connection and indicate single.
I was not aware that you could have two cables in the roof satellite...can I get that done at a Camping World or other service department????? I loved being able to record and watch another program while doing so.
Thank you again. Pat
