Have you confirmed that they will not work with newer rec's. ?

D* would not tell you that you NEED to use X rec in order to use the RV system, what happens when the rec. is no longer available ?
btw, you mentioned the "Low Speed Data port", are you using that for something ?
I have never used the LSD port and it was on a lot the older units.
I would call D* and ask for the technical support dept, then tell them it's a RV situation and maybe you'll get to someone that can help you correctly in that area of the company.
fwiw, I use a HR20-700 for the RV, but it's not hooked up to the auto sat finder set up either, I use a tripod so I can move out from trees when thats an issue.
You might also find out who the maker of the sat locator is and give them a call.
