    A couple weeks ago, I upgraded to the HD sat dish. When the installer finished, he handed me the old dish saying "here, this is yours". I was thinking I'd like to use this as a "remote" dish, take it to football games for tailgating, etc.

    What all do I need to do to get this to work? I assume I'd need to pull one of my receivers from the house. I haven't looked at it closely, but how do I run the cabling from it? Should I also mount it to a pole somehow?

    Anyone done this who can step me though it?

    It makes an excellent nacho platter.

    Actually...since you mentioned Nachos...and I want to add the DirecTV "Para Todos" package...I was wondering if the extra dish can be used to aim at whatever the second horn on that special dual feed horn dish is?
