For Satellite Oasis' part, I have no complaints. The kit arrived on time, and in perfect condition. I had read a lot of the reviews (some great, some quite disparaging). I went ahead & ordered this point-it-yourself dish as I'm fairly electronics savvy and didn't want to spend the money for an automatic signal acquisition device (probably more prone to theft as well). I waited to write this review in hopes that I'd have tips to make it easier for other first time users. Always set it up at home for the first time and DirecTv will assist you if needed. I actually had one of their contractors come out & help me the first time and he gave me a couple of hints. I do think having the dish level is important, though I didn't specifically ask the contractor about it. Using the "Setup" feature in your receiver, put in the zip code where you are then go to the "Point Dish" screen. It gives you the Azimuth & elevation readings you need to point the dish & acquire signal. That screen also indicates the transponder number. Always use 18 or 28. They are the strongest and will pull in the signal faster/better. The signal finder in the kit DOES work. Apparently there are 4 satellites that it will pick up signal from but only one is DirecTv's (someone elses seems to have a stronger signal and is somewhat more to the west of DTV's - my TV screen is quick to say "wrong satllite"). I turn up the TV volume and listen for the beeping signal to go to a solid signal and you can hear the signal changes from the signal finder as well. It certainly helps if you have someone watching your TV screen to alert you as to the percentage of signal strength as you're adjusting the dish. Don't take the elevation marks on the side of the dish to the bank.Read more ›

This was the easiest and simplest dish I've ever set up. The stand is made very solid and sturdy. The only suggestion I might make is that a small level be put in the kit because not everyone owns a level but I do so it did not prohibit my installation.

Prior to this purchase, we have shared use of a Winegard portable dish that my brother owns but because we were planning a trip together it was time for us to get our own. We purchased this kit for use with our RV just prior to leaving for a month-long camping trip to a remote area of California. That the package arrived in a timely manner is about the only good thing we can say. It came the night before we left so there was no time to test reception. The package was only opened, inspected, and repacked. The kit was complete but we were skeptical of the tripod being new as the post was scratched and scarred by the blunt ends of mounting screws and one of the leg rivets had obviously been replaced. As noted by other buyers, there were no instructions included other than that for the satellite finder which were extremely difficult to follow. At our destination we spent several hours attempting to get reception but failed. To test our RV's system, we set up my brother's dish...it worked fine. We had other campers with similar systems attempting to help, all were unsuccessful. Even the park rangers joined in but there was never a hint of a connection. On the forth day, after exhausting everyone's efforts, we made the hour drive into town to call the vendor but that too proved a waste of time and gas money. We left 3 messages that day explaining our plight and asking for help but we got no response. A week later (still without reception) we made another trip to town and again phoned Satellite Oasis but again got no response. After waiting 4 hours in hope that someone would at least return our call, we found the nearest Camping World and purchased a Winegard dish that has worked perfectly.

We understand that there are times when products just fail. It's frustrating but it happens. But for the vender to have no regard for our perdicament is wrong. No way would I ever recommend this product or making a purchase from this vender.

Got this for my RV. Dish is easy to set up. Receive my SD Directv channels with no problem. Still get my HD locals with antenna. Just remember to turn off receiver when using antenna and switch input on your TV. Select "18 round dish" and "multiswitch" in the Directv setup.

The only real problem I had was originally I tried to setup my H25 receiver with this dish. The H25 does not work with this dish, I think because the H25 is SWM technology only. The dish company told me that is the only receiver that does not work with this dish, so I had to buy another receiver from a local dealer, have it activated and pay extra $6/mo for the programming. There was not enough time to have it swapped with Directv because I was leaving the next day for a long trip.

Otherwise I really enjoy having all my favorite programs available while on the road and the difference between SD and HD is not a problem for me.

I camp for a month at a time at Crystal Beach Texas . The RV park has no cable . I was getting tired of missing my shows so after reading the reviews I bought one of these dishes. Geeze did it ship fast , within a few days I had it. I started putting it together and was through in just a few minutes. Actually I sat the dish up in my back yard , and put the tv from the rv that was in storage , on the back deck. It took me about a half an hour to realize that I did not have the tv on channel 3 . After putting the tv on the right channel for set up , I was cooking . Just followed the directions that came with the product and it didnt take long I was watching dish network. I'm glad that I did a pre test instead of waiting until my next trip in October 2013 . I am so pleased with this product that I'm gonna tell all my camping buddy's about it. I am going to drill some holes and put a couple of wing nuts so I can fold up the lnb into the dish itself to make it handier to store. I saw this on a video and thought " what a great idea" . I will put a piece of foam over the Lnb so it doesnt get broke. The compass and the satellite finder work great. You might say " I'm one happy camper". I also think i'm going to add a piece of plywood and set this on top of the RV for a month with some bungees to hold it down, that way it will be out of the way of the mowing crew.Just remember guys that you need dish network before you buy the dish. I already had an extra reciever . Thanks dish ,and thanks oasis , and last thanks Amazon for making it so easy,,, great job!
