Directv Travler.

I have a traveler on the motorhome with a SD box from the house and it all works fine. We are going to head south for a few months and I want to take the Genie and one of the slaves from home and use it while we are gone. Before I tear out the whole house system, is it going to work? The traveler is locking onto satellites 99,101,& 103 (I think, it has been a while since I fired it up.)

I just don't what to go through switching it all and find out....OppS!

Thanks!

Just plug and play, no changes to the satellite setup?

If your Travl'r is the SWM model things will work fine.

Should be "plug & play". The Genie should autodetect the satellite configuration during boot up.
