    Looking for reception advice

    Just thought I would try to get some advice about my situation. I live in Stewartville, MN. I currently have a small rooftop antenna from Radio Shack without a preamp. I also have a rotor. The other day I pointed my antenna north and did a rescan of my stations. To my surprise, I pulled in...

    Buying equipment

    I have calmed down from a previous rant about poor Dish installer experience. I am comfortable with setting up my own equipment. I would be a new dish customer. I want to buy the receiver and dish to get Dish HD. Is this still possible, and if it is, I am looking at the vip211 (don't need...

    Poor experience with Dish install

    I am an easy going guy, but for some reason, this really upset me. Customer service is going the way of the dodo bird. Like was said in another reply, they should have called before the day of the install. I realize things happen, but please give me enough respect to keep me informed of...

    Horror Story with local installer

    What I meant by 4 hours late was this: The installer said he had a light day and told me he would be there by 3 PM. He showed up at 7 PM. This was an annoyance, but I understand things happen. I was more upset with the fact he tried to duck out of the job by just having ME install the...

    Horror Story with local installer

    When I upgraded my system, the installer showed up 4 hours late and then asked me if I had ever installed a system before. I told him that I had installed about 5 systems before, he then asked me if I would install the system myself if he gave me the cable. Even though I knew how to install...
