    NEW DIRECTV SWM-8 KA/KU Single Wire MultiSwitch LNB - eBay (item 230282970832 end time Aug-26-08 08:32:01 PDT) This thing have everything I need? It can't be that different to install than the standard LNB. I see no reason why he couldn't. I don't get where the power supply is suppose to...

    Ok I found them for $150 I believe D does have them available in my area (Chicago), but they don't seem to want to give it to me. Something about reserved for 5 tuners or more. :rolleyes:

    1. I own 2. I was under the impression that D* provides training/certification for installing the SWM LNB's, if I hand him one and say "Use this", he may refuse no?

    Is it normal for DirectTV...

    Well the installer was here and now gone. No DTV. :( I live in a town home and he saw no way to run the cables from the attic down to the first floor. He wanted to run the two cables down the back of my house, in, then across the room but he had no way of hiding them. I'm not gonna be...

    I was told it was a system update they were going through at the time. Install is scheduled for this Sunday. They said I'd be getting a R22 and their newest LNB. I don't know what that means, but I hope they have the quirks worked out.

    Is it normal for DirectTV...

    I'm in Chicago. Now to figure out where to mount, roof is ok but I'll never get to it if I have to clear it off of snow. Pole mount is one option but they'll likely charge me more for that. Side of house and lower would allow me to get to the dish and brush it off if need be. I'd use...

    Eastern Arc Dish Info & Install Guide

    FYI....I have been told by 3 different CSR that eastern arc is not available currently at my ADDRESS. I'm in the NW suburbs of Chicago (one of the first DMA's). So although they list them, not everyone will be covered in them.

    Eastern Arc Dish Info & Install Guide

    I'm scheduled to be installed this Saturday, the current order is for a 1000.2 and 722, but they told me to call on the 20th if I wanted to go on EA, as the part number or whatever for the 1000.4 dish wasn't in their system yet?

    Dish named HD provider for Democratic Convention

    No, it would likely be the unfortunate truth.

    There's a good reason why just about every school in America blocks the site on their computers.

    Dish named HD provider for Democratic Convention

    Hey, if Barrak and Nancy's dreams come true and we become the United Socialist States of America, then you might not get HD anymore if Jose the illegal living in San Antonio doesn't get it. Or they might just increase your bill to pay for his HD viewing pleasure. Equal and fairness to all! :D

    Eastern Arc Dish Info & Install Guide

    I'm going to assume the dish will launch on the 20th?
  19. S

    Lemme get this straight. HD gold/platinum

    Gold costs $10/mo for 38 channels, equating to about .26cents per channel. Platinum costs $10/mo for 7 channels equating to about $1.42 per channel. Does anyone else see a problem with that? I can see charging $4.99 like DTV's extra pack, but $10?

    May switch to Dish

    Pretty bad, lots of lightening and heavy rain. It's nights like tonight that make me wonder how long my service would have been down. lol

    Eastern Arc starting and Turbo HD business rules

    I spoke with Dish Tech online and he pushed my install date back to the 23rd. Told me to call on the 20th and have my order switched from 1000.2 to 1000.4 or 1000.5. He claimed with the current system I would likely need 2 dishes, with the eastern arc I will only need one? I hope I did the...

    Eastern Arc starting and Turbo HD business rules

    Will there be an inherent advantage to being on the eastern arc as opposed to the western? HD and Local HD? Less equipment (dishes)? IF I can't get Dish to push my install date back to allow for the new dish and such, I'll just cancel the order and call back after the 20th. I'd also assume...

    Does Chicago IL mean the Chicagoland area? Surrounding suburbs as well?
