PS: Sept 2014 Update: I used the Carryout with generally positive results. I had to replace the 12V plug on it (the original was of some strange design and broke easily). I also had to send it back for service because of my own blunder. I decided to use the Wineguard as a backup to a a regular dish. Using the regular dish I’m able to record two programs at once, something I’ve missed with the Carryout. So these days I’m using the dish on a tripod. I’m not great at aiming it, but I am getting better.
