Directv in car?
I was thinking of getting DTV sat-go for tailgating but found out it cost $1000 bucks. I was thinking for that much maybe I could just get a fixed dish that goes on top of rv's tour busses ect. and have dtv in my car on my 7"in dash,and when I tailgate just run rca's off the reciever to a bigger tv. I dont even know were to begin looking for this type of thing but I know there out there cause I see truck drivers that have dtv all the time. Anybody know anything about this or have any reviews on the sat-go..

Why not just get a tripod, another dish and take one of your current receivers with you? It's not that hard to setup, and you'll receive all the same programming you do at home with the exception of LIL's (unless you're still in your spotbeam coverage area).
DirecTV will sell you a tripod with single lnb dish and coax for $49. Perfect for tailgating/camping if you don't want/need HD on the road. Also will not get locals off 119 unless you re-aim after booting, but that's a different story.
The mobile dish setups for cars/RVs are usually more than the sat-go. $1000+

cause I have done that before and it has been a pain in the ass. it took us forever to set up granted we didnt use a tri-pod instead we planted a pole. were and what tri-pod do you recomend? i found some of the trac-visions (fixed dish on roof of car)and they cost over 2 grand. im leaning twards the sat-go it just looks so convienent and i wont have to lug a reciever dish tv generator ect. around. i wonder how easy it is to point. any of you have any experience with one?.
