    DirecTV provides us only with shirts and usually one size fits all......I am too fat I need 6X-large and they only supply max 3X-large so I cant fit and always rip those tiny shirts off. Thanks brand-store.com seems to be the place I was looking for. :)

    I know there are a lot of good installers out there and this isn't for you. I had to laugh when I got this e-mail from dish when I inquired about their online services. Of course their response had nothing to do with dishonline. He mentioned his installers will search the property and exhaust ever possible avenue. The two that came stayed about 5:00 minutes tops and took off. One said that if he put it on the chimney it would would work but "that aint going to happen". There is a huge disconnect from the companies to the installers. They need to pay their installers more to ensure professionalism. I was lied to by one DirecTV installer that said it would work farther down my property and he would come out the next day with a crew to do the necessary work. He never came. I still have directv and this Summer I'm going to get a Slimeline and put where the D* installer said it would work but never tried. Below is the Dishnetwork response to my question about getting Dishonline.

    "Thank you for your e-mail.

    Charper 1,
    You may have spoken to Directv employee on the phone. Anyone involved in installations was a contractor of some kind. If you look at the rear door of the next white Directv truck you see, notice that a permanent sign is painted on the back. It says "Now Hiring" because they always are.

    Considering what they pay installers, probably off their back.

    HDTVfanAtic,
    What? They pay for installations?...........I have done installations for contractors DTV approved and: Three paid every penny on time for every job.
    Two vanished owing several hundred dollars.
    Two invented reasons for not paying promptly or completely.
    One vanished before paying anything. He left the state.
    I am curently taking one of the above to small claims court to collect almost four thousand bucks. The dispute is not over the quality of the work. Clerical errors, either real or intentional slowed and then stopped payments comming from this otherwise compenent and ethical company.

    Ask around.

    Joe
