    Cheapest way to get Dish installed with no contract?

    Since you already have a crimper and fittings I would do the self install. You can pickup cable staples or clamps real cheap at lowes or home depot. The clamps with long screws will probably work better on the siding. Don't over tighten the screws! The dish should be alright. I've never seen...

    Cheapest way to get Dish installed with no contract?

    Why not ask the LL if it would be ok to do the install yourself? Or see if he/she would be willing to run the line for a small fee. It doesn't hurt to ask.

    Can't lock in Signal on DISH Network

    Yes, thats the right screen. Actually it should say what sat you on right next to wrong sat. Go to the sat it says and it should lock, the bar will turn green and it will say locked and the sat your on.

    Can't lock in Signal on DISH Network

    When you get back to the cabin, find out what sat your on. Go through the list of satellites till you find the one your on. Dishpointer and the receiver gave me wrong elevation settings. Try raising the elevation 8 deg and re point.
