    This is ANOTHER reason I would not want to be first in line. Possibility of a screwed up or frustrating install. I don't want to be someone's practice session.

    I'll admit, there are a lot of retailers that no very little of the full offerings Dish has. If the info is not provided to them directly from Dish and have proper training they will not know what's going on. Many do not go out of their way to find out what they can.

    I myself prefer to stay ahead of the game. I really enjoy knowing the new products and enjoy selling it more when I understand it. I can understand how some have no idea what's new with Dish since they can be very bad at educating retailers. They do have Retailer Development Forums but some of those are hundreds of miles away. Team Summit is helpful but not everyone can afford to take the time off of work or pay for the expenses. The best thing for a retailer in my mind is to work with a distributor with Dish. They can be very helpful passing news along.

    As for some retailers not having product in stock yet, the Hopper just came available last Thursday. I got mine Friday because I went to my distributor and picked it up. Most retailers will just be getting their inventory now. Then they need to set it up and get familiarized with it. It's not as simple as most here seem to think it is.

    Indeed. And this is also ANOTHER reason I want to do it myself!

    You want to come up and do my install? I'll buy you a couple packs of Spotted Cow for making the trip over the river?

    +1.

    I stopped by my local dealer yesterday hoping to get an early install tentatively scheduled...they didn't give me much confidence talking to them. I knew way more then they did about availability and install particulars (thanks to sat guys...)

    It would be really great if we could work with DIRT on some sort of self install program for forum members....

    Aww man! I love Spotted Cow. New Glarus makes fantastic beer. The beer deal is inticing but that's a little too far for me. Thanks for the offer.
