System is very reliable only if kept with the basic DTV units. Dual LNB.
I found a local KVH dealer that came out and set mine up. Lookup their auth dealer network. They service the Marine industry so there are many units out there.
Good piece of advice. If your not familiar with a satellite system, locate a dealer and have it set up right. You can spend a lot of money and get plenty of headaches trying to maneuver through all this stuff.
Personally, if I were to buy a new set up or even update my existing Winegard Traveler, I would talk to an RF Mogul dealer first. They seem to know their stuf and actually have a good reputation for aftermarket customer service. I know, that sounds strange.
