In-motion satellite

Just purchased a 2004 Affinity with in-motion satellite. What service works best with that?

I have the TracStar 360 in motion on my 06 CC and it works great with the Dish. With one receiver I can watch different channels on front and back TV.

Turbine I have the same unit on my 06 Inspire 36; but I can only watch 1 satellite channel at a time in both TVs, how do you do it?

I have DirecTV and they were a pain in the rear in the beginning but now it seems OK.

Other than one channel at a time on satellite, my only other complaint is getting stuck at a campsite with huge thick trees to the south as they block the antennas view hampering the signal strength.

Dish works well with In Motion, but you have to use one satellite at any given time on all TVs or you'll be reinitializing a lot.

HD though. And very cheap if you have it at home; $7 per receiver per month.

Direct tv works well in our 09 Magna both front and back....careful to block some of the "bad channels."

We have 2 each Dish Receivers in our Magna. I would assume they work best with Dish Network.

for Dish try tuning to 1000 or 1000a instead of going to 110/119/129.
At one of the FMCA rallies that was comment. When on 1000 you can't get local channels which you lose anyway after about 120 miles from home. Sometimes it works for me.
