For Directv you have to have a full size dish to get all the channels plus HD. Any smaller dish means no HD plus there's hardly any channels anymore when using a small dish. That means either a Winegard or similar automatic dish on the roof or a Directv Slimline dish mounted on a portable stand. I have both.
Here's the Winegard roof mount dish, I have this one. Works great.
