Love my carry out worked great the first two times we used it. Now we have no signal from the antenna to the Direct TV box.
Tried using different Direct TV box (Both Direct boxes function on different antenna)
Tried different wires no success.
You can hear the Carryout whirring away to find the satelite, and it appears to find what it is looking for but no signal arrives to the TV. HELP I love my tv.
What model # DirecTV receiver are you trying to use? The H25 and HR34 receivers will not work without adding the SWM modifications. If some other receiver, have you gone into the receiver "repeat satellite setup" routine and made the necessary adjustments to setup your receiver to work with a portable antenna?
The Direct TV model number on the box is D12-100, this worked perfectly for two months?? maybe 10 weeks with the antenna. After being home for one week we went out in the RV and the TV screen indicated no signal when we switched everything on.
We have tried operating the antenna in various locations with no success.
While the unit was working it found the satellite very quickly and produced an excellent picture.
We purchased the antenna at Camping World, San Marcos CA., about the end of September 2012.
Model number GM1518.
Please advise what we should do next. Many thanks for your help.
The D12 should not be an issue. I would suggest that you go into the receiver setup menu following the instructions found here:

We have used the D12-100 and others with no problems. One item may need checking - on some brands of TV's, there is an INPUT" selection on your remote which may have TV AV HDMI, etc. You may need to adjust that setting. I learned this the hard way.
The issue you're describing is pretty much the same thing that was happening to me (have posting to this board). My portable worked great last year while RV'ing, stored the dish in my garage over the winter, and couldn't get it to work this year. Numerous calls to tech support working on various issues. After removing the dome and disconnecting / reconnecting wires (had me disconnect wires to check voltage) the unit started tracking and locked on satellite. I've got the D12-700 DirecTV receiver and it works well. Can't use the 'out to tv" coax to hook up TV though....won't recognize it. If I put the red, yellow, white connectors from receiver to TV it works fine.
