I haven't seen in your posts what your sat interface box shows on its display after you deploy the Traveler. Does it show locked on to 3 sats?

You shouldn't be having problems with an HR24, even though it's an older DVR. If it's working at home the cabling has to be correct.

What are the DTV messages you get on your TV when you switch to the sat input?

Yes, I thought that I said that this pertained to local channels (the spot beams). Sorry if that was not clear, and it probably wasn't, for the confusion. Sat channels anywhere but all network TV programs which are usually carried by local RF television stations, are the problem resolved by DNS

Converted Trav'ler to Dish

Finally got around to converting the Trav'ler to Dish.

Thanks to Rob's (VOLTDOC) excellent write up on this thread (post #19) the job was not that difficult. Used fender washers suggested by Dave (hogdriver) on post 20. Took a little over 2 hours on the roof and another hour on the wiring down below. Dug out the three coax cables to use because we are using a hopper and Joey.

These are the tools used on the roof, hopefully this list will prevent anyone doing this in the future from making multiple trips up and down the ladder:

3/8 drive ratchet with 1/2", 3/8" sockets, short extension.
5/16" nut driver
1/4" and 3/16" hex wrench
phillips screwdriver
box knife (to cut away silicone around three mounting screws on cap removed to get to the three buried coax cables)
flat bladed screwdriver (used to break away foam to get to the cables)
needle nose pliers (used to dig out foam)
small swish broom and dust pan to clean up foam mess.
black silicone sealer
expending foam
black electrical tape (to put wire protector around coax cables)

My Anthem wiring down below was slightly different from Rob's Aspire. The three coax cables were found behind the frame rail and not behind the slanted panel.

To install the Joey in the B/R there was no unused 110V outlet behind the TV, had to use 3 way adapter to plug it in.

From the photo below and palm tree in the way I'm really surprised we were able to get a signal on all three satellites (110, 119, 129). Neighbor next to us has no obstruction and his tailgater on the roof only gets 2?

Ready2Travel I just switched back to DISH, glad to be back! What receiver are you using in the MH? I have an older 211K, that I was doing pay as you go, but I am thinking of purchasing the new Wally for the MH. Looks like it has a lot of nice features.

Have the Hopper and Joey, just took them out of the home on this trip. Nice to bring all the recorded programs with us. The Hopper 3 I understand will not work however. Dish does not like you using a Hopper in the MH because of potential damage to the hard drive when traveling. This risk can be eliminated by unplugging the Hopper from electric when moving.

I understand the Hopper 3, which I have, will work but needs some kind of additional connector. That is why the Wally might be my new choice for the MH.

I am looking at the Hopper GO. It is a little box that can hold 100 hour of recording from the Hopper and can be played almost anywhere. Perfect for taking in the MH without disconnecting my equipment from the S&B https://www.amazon.com/DISH-HopperGO...ords=hopper+go

We have a 2019 Entegra Aspire with four tv's and the Matrix system. We want to convert to Dish from Direct. Will I be able to cable up all four tv's with the Dish. The Direct looks to use a HDMI splitter to all four tv's. The Dish only has three wires from the roof. How do I get all four tv's hooked up? Will the Matrix still work?
Thanks
