I am renting an apt and the patio faces south. Does anyone know if this will work for DirectTv or not. What is the best way to figure out if I will be able to pick up a good signal before they come out and tell me more. Thanks.
Use Dishpointer or if you have an iphone buy the dishpointer app. This is the quickest and cheapest way to find out. If it is borderline, call up your local installer and have them do a site survey where they bring a dish and a meter to make 100% determination.
