We don't use the RV and home at the same time, so it looks like just switching the necessary boxes back and forth would be the best way to go. Any insights from the "old hands" would be appreciated.


why not just rent another box for the home and leave it in the RV?

Not like I have to switch over every week. We're on the road in 3-6 month blocks so switch over is about a 5 minute job.

Love having DirecTV and DNS. I have not had to call/write or chat with anyone from DTV in YEARS! No changes needed. With the Trav'ler and a Genie/client setup I rarely watch live TV so when it comes on or where it's broadcast from has no meaning to me. I watch local news and national news using OTA from 5 until 6 or so and then it's back to whatever we have recorded. We also have a Firestick (2 actually) and can stream something available from a number of platforms as I luckily have a truly unlimited data plan no longer available. Even so, 90% of our TV watching is via satellite.


I'm right there with you Bill. Actually my system is just like yours, but I have a Slimline dish on a tripod.

Both setup work equally well. I'm just lazy and willing to pay for the convenience!


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

We are using Netflix for series and some torrent sites for films (https://torrentsites.com/movies-torrent-sites/). We are currently watching Ozark Season 3, Wendy Byrde has gone off the deep end this season for sure.
Rotten has come out with a second season.
Peaky Blinders was pretty good.
Schitt's Creek was pretty funny.
I've heard the Pharmacist is a good watch.
Wild Wild Country
Narcos, though this most newest season is pretty slow.
Mindhunter, I think this show is pretty good, it's a show about the FBI building case profiles on serial killers.
The Staircase
Murder Mountain
Evil Genious
Godless
The Devil Next Door
The Innocent Man
