Hi- My '05 has the Aquos LCD television and came with the DirecTV satellite receiver. I now want to subscribe to DirecTV and get this thing up and running. What's involved with doing this? What information do I need to provide DirecTV when talking to them? Do they need id numbers from your receiver? Does a tech need to come to the coach to do anything or do I deal with it after some remote signal is turned on for my equipment? I'm looking for a shortcut overview. The stack of books that came with the coach dealing with the TV equipment is quite daunting.

Thanks, Rick Coleman

Rick,
First turn on the Kingdome and find the Satellite

Switch to input 5 on the Aquos. Turn on the direct TV receiver; you should get a DTV picture. Tune the DTV receiver to channel 100 to verify you are connected. Call DTV and set up an account you will need the card ID and receiver serial number. Most DTV receivers display this info when a system test is run. The Kenwood receiver needs to be on video 1 to provide audio.

WRV typically connects the Aquos to the DTV receiver using a DVI cable from the receiver to the Aquos (this is accessed on input 5).

To receive east and west coast networks ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX you need to fill out a DNS form and send a copy of your registration to DTV.

<A HREF="http://www.directv.com/learn/pdf/DNS_Vehicles_Aff.pdf" TARGET=_blank>

http://www.directv.com/learn/pdf/DNS_Vehicles_Aff.pdf</A>

Quote from DTV web site "Before we can add DNS to your service, federal law requires that you send us the following information:
" Photocopy of your vehicle registration.
" This Mobile Vehicle Affidavit Declaration of Intent form (please print and complete).
" Photocopy of commercial driver's license (if you're requesting service for a commercial vehicle such as a tractor trailer). "

Hope this gets you started.

Rick - I think the first thing you need to do is contact DirecTV and get an acct. set up with them..i.e. to card to make the receiver work then go about doing what Wayne said. (at least that's how we did it)
