It isn't reasonable to use a motorized dish as they typically aren't designed to receive up to four orbital slots (99W, 101W, 103W, 119W) simultaneously as may be required for DIRECTV.It is always possible to modify your dish to do it if you know what you're doing and like tinkering but it's not as simple as sticking the Directv LNB to your dish, and if you have problems you're on your own.

There is also the problem of needing to handle both Ku and Ka frequency bands that, to date, can only be accomplished with a DIRECTV LNB assembly.
I would be surprised if there weren't polarity and switching issues at play here too.
My point goes much further. I'm stating that you're all wet with respect to being able to do more than 101W with a 1M dish (and even that depends on the configuration of the LNB). You failed to point out limitations and special conditions of what you proposed (and there are several).Umm, thanks. That's why I used the qualifiers "if you know what you're doing and like tinkering" and "it's not as simple as sticking the Directv LNB to your dish"
The proper functioning of the receiver demands a particular stack plan and signaling that would be almost impossible to simulate with a couple of LNBs (one Ku and one Ka) and a motor driven dish. Then there's the pretty much insurmountable issues of doing more than one channel (without hand-picking channels that are on the same slot) at a time or HD programming. I'm thinking you would have to design and build some sort of motor controller to translate switch requests and make sure you were using the appropriate LNB to aim at each satellite.And BTW they don't have to receive 4 slots simultaneously, the dishes are just designed that way so they don't have to move. Any given channel only requires reception from one bird.
