Phil, the DW4000 is not an option for me as I have the DW6000.? Sure wish I had dragged my feet for the DW7000.? Ron, how much does it cost to upgrade to the DW7000?? Do you also need a new dish or just the modem?
Quasi, you think I could order it temporarily on a phone line and then abandon the phone line at a later date?
I order my pay per views over the web so don't need a phone line for them.
This whole issue of TV and Internet sat communications is something I wish I could start all over again. I would do things quite differently now that I know more about things.
I have the in motion KWH Direct TV system. Once in a while I arrive at a park with clear skies, but the system will not search after we set up camp. But if I move a 100 feet or so everything comes back to normal. Nothing is blocking the view, it is like it gets stuck.
Now we follow the suggestion of someone on this forum and start the system 50 miles or so from our destination. We keep it running as we park the coach.
But I would love to know why it sometimes seems to get stuck in the non search mode.
On another forum someone suggested a cold boot by turning off both the ac into the coach and the DC. We have tried that 4 times. Once it worked and the system started up its search routine. But three times it failed to work and we had to move the coach and then return it to its spot.
Now that we are here at our likely winter location at El Mirage AZ, we were happy that this time the Direct TV zeroed in flawlessly. But alas, we discovered we left the power brick for our Internet DW6000 modem back in MT. Ron came to the rescue and is arranging to have a loaner sent to us until the original cord is found and shipped. We sure do appreciate the care and concern Ron gives to his customers.
