One Person Easy Set-up:
The true power of the VuQube Satellite Antenna is its portability and simple one person set-up. The VuQube antenna is self contained in a weather resistant enclosure. It requires no assembly or installation, just place the VuQube on the ground, in the back of your pick-up, on a picnic table or anywhere there is a clear view of the southern sky. Once positioned, run a single coaxial cable (provided with purchase) from the satellite receiver to the VuQube and use a wireless remote to move the motorized antenna dish inside the VuQube until you lock on to a signal.
Included with purchase of the VuQube:
- VuQube Satellite Antenna System
- Wireless Remote to position antenna
- Wiring and cables
Additional equipment needed to watch TV:
- Subscription to service provider (i.e. DISH Network, DIRECTV, Bell ExpressVu)
- Satellite TV receiver
VuQube has a single out-put. What this means is that you need to use a SINGLE TUNER receiver. For DISH Network we recommend the 301 or 311 receivers. For DIRECTV, we recommend the D11 or D12 receivers.
HDTV. The VuQube CAN receive HD signal with DISH Network. The VuQube CANNOT receive HD signal with DIRECTV. We are busy working on updating the VuQube to receive the new Ka band HD signal from DIRECTV but not there yet. So, what this means is that if you have DIRECTV you will not be able to receive your HD programming.
Multiple Satellite Programming. The VuQube can be used with programming on multiple satellites but it is very important to know that the VuQube “locks-on” to one satellite signal at a time. For multiple satellite programming like DISH 500, you will need to switch between satellites to receive all of your programming. This is easily accomplished following the user instructions but has been reported back by some customers to be a bit slow at times. We are working on improving this interface, but if you have DISH 500 or DISH 1000, switching between satellites will currently take some patience. Remember you can always call us for help!
