    This is a must have. I purchased this combo about a year ago and it works great. I subscribe at home with Dish Network and now I get my same programming that I have at home out on the road for only an additional $7.00 per month added to my bill. System is HD clear, no problems as of yet. Wanted to use for a year before posting a review to see if the product did what was expected and it has.

    System works great. make sure you talk with someone who knows satellite setup and use zip code for your location if you want local channels to work. 45 min. to setup. And the smart card is inside front cover behind a drop down door. Realy this thing works great and I was in trees. I sat it on the ground in front of RV. I live in COLORADO and was in TX. and watching football playoffs. So far no problems, but set up will take longer than advertised. This is the best thing I have added to my RV. Clear sharp pic. Enough said. Get it and you will be pleased.

    I bought this combo about 1 month ago and am amazed at how well it works. We stay at heavily treed State Parks and every time we have been able to get a signal ! Pretty shocked as every time there have been ALOT of trees all around us. One caution though the initial setup took a LONG time between activating the receiver and getting a signal took forever. This could of been due to the fact that we were in heavily wooded area.However now we just set it out and quickly get a signal and away we go.

    The Portable Tailgater Satellite Antenna The VIP 211k Racever

    This Portable Dish is very easy to carry around everywhere I go since it automatically finds the satellite for you. Even though the VIP 211K is the only receiver that will work with the dish Tailgater it is still a very good satellite dish thanks to Dish Network. Its good, because it gets its power from the receiver too!
