    Sorry to hear about your neighborhood. My van was stolen several years ago (found it in Sparks). A very helpless feeling when things are taken from you. (Like Voom) I switched to Dish this week though the local installer ADCO. They did an excellent job. My roof looks like a dish farm...

    Hi Vickyi Thanks Vicki. It's nice to see you are back too. Hope you are a limber person with everything crossed like you have. We may have to wait awhile before we find out what the final outcome. :( The Voom experience has been very pleasurable for me. In fact the gang will be over...

    West coast voomers, do you have rain fade?

    This is a follow up to my post on 11-25. Crave Electronics came out to the house when they said they would and replaced my 18" dish with a 24". Now all I have to do is wait for rain and see how it works. Crave was very professional and quick. They sent two men (maybe a trainee). Means more...

    Sacramento Area VOOM Dealer

    I went to the local Arts and Wine festival this weekend (Oct. 9-10) and one of the local home entertainment installers had a booth. They featured VOOM as it's main attraction. There was a large sign with VOOM on it and a large plasma TV displaying VOOM for everyone. I was impressed with their...

    Any Voomers from Sacramento, CA ?

    I checked my system today and Chennel 31 was mapped and it comes in very clear. So now everything comes in fine and the PQ is fantastic. Channels 3, 6, 10, 13, 31, 40, and 58 are there nice and clear.

    Any Voomers from Sacramento, CA ?

    I am able to get channel 58. It was mapped initially when I was first installed, but I didn't receive it. Several days later channel 58 does did come in. The only local channel I do not get is channel 31 and it isn't mapped. I wrote to get it mapped and hopefully the new software upgrade...

    Have you been told...? (By CSR OTA mapping not possible because FCC...)

    I'm in the Sacramento area and both of channels for ABC are mapped. I'm 25 miles from the towers in Walnut Grove. The problems I have are channels 58 and 31. 58 is mapped but is black. 31 Doesn't show up at all. I have the Stealth antenna. Everything else is fine.
