Is it an issue of using the directv receiver on one TV and using another source on the others. Thanks for all advice.
It does not replace your current TV antenna. My old Hurricane 35M had a spot on the roof marked for satellite installation (above the cockpit), and I had the Winegard Trav'ler DirecTV dish installed. Yes, trees can block the DirecTV signal if they are blocking a south-western view of the sky. Whether or not you can move the vehicle around depends on the size of the lot, or if another lot with a better view is available.
Depending on how you wire it, you can have a DirecTV receiver in each room, you could get an HDMI splitter to use one receiver but transmit the signal to another TV (e.g., https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
), or you buy a wireless HDMI transmitter and receiver that wirelessly transmits the picture from one TV to another (e.g., https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Tran...r+and+receiver
). I just installed this wireless system in my new travel trailer and it works great!!!
Lots of options for you.
