Directv set up

We have a 2012 Open Road 32 ft. We have a Wingard dome set up for Directv. We thought if we took our Directv box from the house we could use it in the coach. But we can't figure out how to set it up and Directv says they won't help us because the dome isn't theirs. Can anyone tell us how to set it up? HELP

Go to the menu screen at the receiver and change the sat settings for your dome. What you use at home is programed in and you will have to go to sat setup and go through the process to match the dome to your reciever

Change the antenna setting to a 18' dish multi switch.

I have a Wingard open road sat dish. Take 2 of our Directv DVR boxes from home when we travel, one for front and one for the bedroom. When setting up do not connect receiver to sat dish just tv. Go into setup and change sat configuration. Wingard told me to use 02 - 3LNB (18 x 20), multiswitch and single (unless you have SWM). Select continue and connect cable to receiver. I have called Directv many time. I tell them I have taken my receivers from home and put them in our Rv and they have been very helpful getting them working. Seems the trick is not to attach the sat cable until you have configured for the Wingard dish.

If you want to support both receivers in a DVR ( record a show while watching another) you can add a SWM 8 Multiswitch. I bough mine on Ebay. The Wingard web site shows how to connect it. The single cable connection to each DVR supports 2 receivers (SWM like at home).
