On my '06, I recently had installed the Moto Sat with the exposed 3 LNB's using DirecTV. I am not interested in the in-motion feature. It finds the 3 satellites every time and never loose a picture in stormy conditions -- unlike my Kingdome did. One downside is when using a remote dish in the tree filled N.W, it takes more than a 'little opening' to tune. Recently I had to use a single LNB dish to get the signal. My remote 3 LNB dish is kind of a all or nothing proposition and takes a good opening to find the signal.

With the new DirecTV HD channels coming online (local and network) that utilize MPEG 4 compression, transmitted on Ka & Ku bands from what are now 5 operational sats (99-101-103-110-119), the required "opening" has been enlarged significantly. In OR/WA, for example, the new 5 LNB Ka/Ku dish needs a clear sky at a true elevation of approximately 38 degrees and an azimuth "window" spanning from 125 to 175 degrees magnetic (viewed to the south with 99 at the left and 119 at the far right-- spread out in the order above).

Ted: It would seem much better for WRV to keep their eye on quality control than on trying to keep up with all the satellite tv changes. One can only ponder how the KingDome and other manufacturers will cope with this new technology.
