I am paying for local HD and Dish says I should be getting them but they do not show up in my Guide anywhere.

What is your zip code. If your locals come from eastern arc, and the tailgater only has western Arc orbitals, that would cause that.

I am in Greenville,SC. Why would they sell me a product knowing it wouldn't work as expected?

That is an eastern Arc area. That means you need the EA satellites. You have a few choices. You can purchase a Winegard X2, a Winegard Trvl'r, or a 1000.2 EA manual dish. They sold you an automatic dish, which I suspect is what you asked for.

Thanks! Fascinating that no one I have spoken to at Dish has this information. I'll be shopping now...

If you still want the convenience of a portable automatic dish, the Winegard Pathway X2 mentioned above is the best choice for both eastern and western arc access.
