Direct tv reception

I installed a direct tv box. I get reception when I'm at home. Went to another state n now it says no signal. I tried changing the zip code to point the Dish but it didn't work. Any ideas? Everything is hooked up correctly. This happened on my last trip. Prior to this trip I made certain it worked. Frustrated.!!! Thnx

What direct tv box do you have and what dish do you have.

If you are looking for local channels, contact them using the chat feature. Tell them you are permanent residence of a RV. If you are trying to use a box that has your home address, they will not like that.

Ok, so I turned on the tv then the direct box then the satellite. It went into update mode which tells me it's receiving something. Then it went to a screen that said refresh on line or call for help. So I waited and didn't do anything. After a few minutes it switched screens to a error code menu. I hit enter n it gave several options, one being all channels. I chose it n the tv came on. Go figure. Don't understand why but it worked. Thnx for all your input.
