Winegard TRAV'LER Upgrade Kit SK73UP for Shaw DirectRVWI0072
We currently have 3 in stock.
Shaw Direct has recently implemented the third and final phase of its transition plan from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 satellite encoding. This change will bring many exciting new features to Shaw Direct customers, including expanded high definition (HD) programming options, enhanced programming guide functionality, and additional receiver features.
While Winegard strives to build products with longevity in mind, this change will cause any Shaw TRAV’LER (model SK-7002 or SK-7003) system built prior to November 1, 2017 to lose ability to properly identify and lock to Shaw Direct orbital satellites, rendering the antenna non-operable.
Winegard has developed upgrade kit SK-73UP that can be utilized to retrofit affected TRAV’LER systems.
The SK-73UP kit includes the following:
a new IDU (interface control box)
ODU (under turret electronics assembly)
Specialized tool to remove and reinstall ODU
ODU mounting screws
