I ordered a new Tailgater system that was delivered yesterday. Last night I tried to do the initial setup. Every time, I go through the setup process and it gets to step 2 of 5, which is to download software and install the switch from the satellite. It starts, gets about 1/8 to 1/4 through the process, and terminates with an error. There is no error number, it just says "An Error Occurred Installing Switch", and starts over. I can hear the dish moving inside the Tailgater, and it seems to locate the satellite(s) initially because it does start to download each time. The problem is it freezes and terminates with that same error message. I was on the phone with customer support three separate times last night about this, and the best idea they had was to move the Tailgater around. It was very level, and no significant trees or any other obstructions. Finally at midnight I was frustrated and over it and decided to deal with it today. Finally, for any of you who may be in Texas, I have this question. On Step 1 of the portable satellite setup process, it asks what state you are in. In Texas, it gives the options of "East Texas" and "West Texas". Austin is right in the middle. I"m guessing probably either should work, but I don"t know if one is required or will work better than the other. Any ideas? Late last night I was ready to package it up, return it and cancel the service, but I"d like to try at least one more time to get it working. Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
Solved: considering buying a portable automated dish by "tailgater".¬† anyone have experience with them?¬† what is direct
First off, yes the receiver will cost you $6 per month recurring fee. In this case, you might want to see if you can find an owned, used, D12 receiver. Activate it during the tailgating season, then deactivate it and store it away the rest of the year. You can do that with an owned receiver, but not with a leased receiver. Be very careful buying a used receiver though - get the Receiver ID Number (RID) from any that you are considering, then call DirecTV access card department and verify if you buy the unit you will be able to activate it (that it is in fact an owned and not leased unit, and that it is from a clean account).
Introducing the Regent Tailgater. The KING Tailgater is a Mobile Satellite TV Antenna that is both portable and.
Whether you're partial to Dish Network or Directv, the cheapest bottom dollar option is to set up Satellite TV service in your home and then take one of the receivers that was set up in your home with you when you travel.
With Directv, there is only one option: a 2 year agreement. If you live in your RV, this is great since you"ll use it all the time. Or if you want Directv in your home, this is also a good solution. If you only service for 4 months a year, then you you"ll be paying months that you"re not using.
It's important to connect the correct receivers with your chosen satellite TV antennas. Match your model with the appropriate receiver to start watching TV.
The Tailgater and KING Relay work exclusively with DISH satellite TV service. The custom-designed interface allows these systems to work¬†specifically with DISH to deliver¬†fast and reliable TV to your antenna.¬†And the setup is easy! Once you connect the coax cable to the receiver, just follow the simple on-screen instructions and you’ll have all your favorite channels with you wherever you go.
Anyone had experience with the Tailgator satellite TV receiver?
Hopefully you understand that the Tailgater is an antenna and you would also need a Dish Receiver (VIP211K only is required) and a service plan with Dish. As long as you have the 211K and only need the one receiver you should not have any issues with that setup. The Tailgater is built by King Dome and sold under the Dish label.
