    Disadvantage of Smaller KVH Systems (Sat. TV)-gctid801128

    KVH advertises their systems and tells you the size of boat each is designed for.

    Would a smaller system work on a larger boat. What would be the downside to a smaller less expensive HD unit?

    Thanks

    Smaller is impeded by latitude. The farther north, the larger dish. I chose Intellian i3 over KVH and it works flawlessly. At your latitude a 13" dish (i2) will be OK except perhaps in a torrential rainstorm. http://www.intelliantech.com/Sattv/i-Series/i2...but like most things, bigger is better. I wouldn't go smaller than 13" like go for KVH TV 3 over TV 1 (note Direct TV uses different equipment than Dish)
