Re: Direct TV Solutions for Class B
wincrasher: Do you need a US address to use the Dish pay as you go service, or do they care? Where or what is the easiest place or way to get it for us folks here in Canuckistan? Looking for simplicity of process, in acquiring it.
We've been thinking of getting a US based sat service for future trips to the USA, but our Shaw Direct rig still works down south, as far as I know, but I haven't tried it in over a year. I'd like to get an automatic dish system for Shaw Direct, but I was told by the manufacturers, like Winegard and King Controls/VuQube, that the internal paddle dishes in the domed automatic tail gating units weren't big enough, or sensitive enough, to work farther south than a few hundred miles from the border. I was suspicious that it might possibly be propaganda to discourage cross border usage. We usually spend most of our time in the 4 corners area, or up and down the eastern side of the Rockies, so signal coverage could be an issue. Just wondering if you have any pro/con experience.
Good trick adding the external HD to make the receiver a DVR.
It's not a sprint(er) (unless you make it one), it's (hopefully) a marathon.
