    Non-Penetration Installation of DirecTV

    And I take it these were Dish Network installs you did on trees at the time? As I can't imagine doing that for a DIRECTV Slimline dish. Whatwith the tight aiming tolerances needed for the Ka band. Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk

    Non-Penetration Installation of DirecTV

    Correct, as admittedly I can only go on the assumed veracity of what the OP claims the tech. told him. So if the tech. really said that a railing mount would require a third party installer, and considering the way AT&T is cutting back on DIRECTV everywhere nowadays (and seemingly wants...

    Non-Penetration Installation of DirecTV

    No my "Wow" was regarding the fact that the tech was just dismissive after claiming the dish had to be secured to the rail as though that couldn't be done. Without at least explaining to the customer the need to call and setup a custom installation on a rail mount. Sent from my LM-V600 using...

    Directv hotel install

    You do have to clean up the mess, then install the standard commercial hotel/lodging D2 advantage type cabling and equipment from the dish on down to the SWiM splitters and homeruns to the rooms don't you? Reverse Band 5 legacy LNB dish on an NPRM sled ---> pol. locker ---> trunk amplifiers...

    Directv hotel install

    Gawd what a mess. ... Why did the tech think he needed 42 coax runs to four dishes? And didn't he know you're supposed to use cinder blocks on NPRM sleds for that type of installation? Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk

    Winegard Carryout G3 with DirectTV HR44 receiver signal loss (721) with only Line 1 in connected

    As Raoul stated earlier after having read up on the G3 .... It doesn't receive HD, or more specifically the Ka-band. So the BBCs are not required. ... Sent from my LM-V600 using Tapatalk

    WABC 771 error

    Yeah .... Since you "moved", therefore it appears you're outside the spotbeam (Beam A1B1 from T11@99W) for the NY market which WABC is duplicated on now and your receiver(s) are programmed to try and tune to for local channel 7 in your guide. When you tune to channel 390 your receiver(s) are...

    LCC problem.

    Ok, well then unfortunately there's the problem ... The LCC, though the sucessor to the AM21, is not compatible with your receiver. 1st generation Genie receivers only .... Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk

    The end of Directv

    Yeah .... Of course the traditional rationale providers offer for their 1G internet service is capacity not for just a single user, but the additive effects of lots of simultaneous streaming, gaming (and now services like Zoom going on), and connected IOT devices on top of the routine internet...

    I still don't really get this .... What are the avg. home veiwership numbers like anyway? For instance at present there are six DIRECTV DVRs in use in our home right now veiwing and/or recording live programming for about 8 required streams. So how is AT&T TV with a paltry 3 stream max. limit...
