I run a converter box from my car to power the tv and a simple antenna to pick up the local channels in HD.

One game I forgot the antenna, so I fashioned one out of a soda can, jumper cables and a twist-tie. I was able to watch CBS in HD it was pretty fantastic

Default Re: TV while Tailgating!

I'm pretty sure it's just me, but I have always had a terrible time trying to set up satellites at a tailgate. OTA antennas work well, but you can't get ESPN. If there was a good way to get internet then that could be a great alternative. Especially if you have a slingbox or something setup to stream from. The only way I would do it in the future is if I had one of the "tailgater" or vucube type dishes.

Good luck!

Most phone companies offer wireless tethering to most smartpones, so internet is easily accessible in a lot of cases, or could simply buy a mobile hot spot.

Default TV while Tailgating!

I've been setting up a sat dish for tailgating for 6-7 years. Before last year we would use a repurposed directv dish, but it was often a pain to set up correctly and only gave a SD picture. Last year I picked up a Dish Tailgater box and love it. All I have to do is point it in a general South direction and it automatically finds the sat and displays a HD picture. It has rubber feet so we just stick it on top of someone's truck. Plus Dish has month-to-month plans where with DTV you have to sign a 2-year contract.

Yeah I am aware of that, but in general it is not a viable option. 3G isn't really fast enough to stream video, let alone HD video. Also most cell carriers have data limits for cell phone tethering and mobile hot spots. For the use case I'm thinking of (Watching games all day while tailgating before a night game), you would run through that bandwidth pretty quickly. The only real viable option with that would be an a truly unlimited 4G plan, which I think only sprint offers now, which also isn't available in Columbia.

Default Re: TV while Tailgating!

It seems like carrying a satellite and setting all of that up would be kind of pointless now.

With ESPN3 and smart phones/laptops with HDMI out ports, you should be able to run that to a TV.

Default Re: TV while Tailgating!

This year will be the first year we try to use the watch ESPN app on my phone to mirror to the TV. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and I bought a Samsung HML adapter. You plug the HML adapter to the charging port of your phone, hook the adapter to a charger and then run your HDMI from the adapter to the TV.
I tried already at home and it works great, although the picture gets pixelated when it appears on the 32".
The only thing I'm worried about is the reception for Sprint around the stadium, it Suuuuucks! Luckily I have and HD satellite too. We used it last year and could get ABC, CBS, etc.
All the power is coming from my Yamaha 2400 generator.
