    Another failed Direct TV install

    It was the attitude I got from the installer. The moment I told him my association did not allow roof mounts (Even after telling the sales person, and the woman who called to confirm the appointment) said he could not do the install. I live in a development with 165 condos. We all have the...

    Another failed Direct TV install

    Would they mount the pole to the house? I don't have a place where they could dig since it's a concrete patio. I talked to another neighbor and he said I just had a crappy installer and that he had a site supervisor come out to do his install with no troubles as far as side mounting it.

    Another failed Direct TV install

    note... the dish had to be installed on a patio. I don't have any ground for a pole mount unless he wanted to bracket the pole to the side of my condo.

    Another failed Direct TV install

    I'm just lost. This guy "COULD" have made it work. Dish Network installed a HUGE dish on my patio and did it in a way that he could hang on the damn dish and it wouldn't move. This guy was just pissed that it wasn't a 1-2-3 roof mount. It was like he was purposely complaining that he only...

    Another failed Direct TV install

    I'm at a loss. My neighbor FINALLY cut down all his trees leaving me with a perfect line of site (a reason why I couldn't go with Direct years ago. The installer came out and immediately talked about a roof install. I informed him I could not have a roof install due to my condo rules. I said...

    Installer put the satellite on my roof, now I have to take it down...

    This is where Dish pissed me off to no avail. Even after asking the installer "Are you sure they aren't vent installs?" he stated that they were not, and if I did not believe me that I could climb up on the roof and check for myself. I took his word for it. Well, they WERE vent installs and...

    Installer put the satellite on my roof, now I have to take it down...

    The wall mount was attached to rotted trim and it was the only place on my patio he could install it. I was also getting horrible signals because my neighbors tree magically grew over the LOS. They want everything removed and told me to patch it with roof cement. I was tempted to leave it in...

    Installer put the satellite on my roof, now I have to take it down...

    The community dish idea was struck down because they said it would be a significant cost to the association to do this. They also said people would fight between dish and direct.

    Installer put the satellite on my roof, now I have to take it down...

    Thanks, but unfortunately OTARD doesn't protect you from putting satellites on your roof in condo associations. I've torn the net up looking for loop holes but every legal site and FCC site I've been to states Condo's with roof exclusions = no deal.

    Installer put the satellite on my roof, now I have to take it down...

    Dish came out a year ago and installed an eastern arc and a separate wing dish so I could get receiption on my patio. 3 weeks ago I went outside to check the dish because the signal was horrible and I noticed the wing dish was coming off the wall. I called dish and they came out (I have the 6...

    L.O.S. and Being Under Contract

    My neighbor has a HUGE tree and the installer did not think that the tree would be a problem. Last year it wasn't... this summer... OMFG the signal would go out at the slightest breeze. It was totally annoying and I dealt with it. I just have to get through winter (no leaves on the tree) and...

    New HD local markets being launched

    one of these days I wont kick and scream and will be excited to see Dayton Ohio getting HD locals on the EA. So tired of having 2 dishes (not a wing dish, but 2 separate dishes on my back patio) I feel like I live at an airport with all the equiptment. oh well :)

    Opinion: House Robbed - 1 TV left

    Thanks! It's only been a week and I'm patiently waiting for the info on how much they'll pay. Personally I'd like another 1080p and although I love the Plasma and how nice it was, I'd rather have an LCD or LED that doesn't drain the power.

    Opinion: House Robbed - 1 TV left

    Luckily I just reimaged my PC 3 weeks prior. I even had the Windows 7 Ultimate disk in the drive. (My damn signature edition for throwing a house party for Microsoft) So I added that to the claim 319.99. The laptop was password protected too (Thank goodness) poor theives... the mobo was bad...

    Opinion: House Robbed - 1 TV left

    Yeah... I've since stopped using Foursquare and am currently working on revamping my facebook/blog usage. In all fairness, our gas company was on site for the week and had been asking my neighbors about my unit, when I'd be home, where I was, etc... they wanted to turn the gas back on to my...

    Opinion: House Robbed - 1 TV left

    wow... they do that??? Would have been nice for those 2 week vacations I've taken because without fail my DVR goes apeshit when I'm away and screws up the recordings anyway... BTW... signature line... :up

    Opinion: House Robbed - 1 TV left

    And that's the approach I was taking too, but they didn't even understand that I was looking to turn the extra receivers off as well as the HD. That's a 17 dollar charge right there.

    Opinion: House Robbed - 1 TV left

    I'm still not thinking coherently, so I figured I'd get an opinion. Last week I came home from a 10 day vacation only to find that my condo had been robbed. I was cleaned out. 3 TVs (42 plasma, 32 LCD, 19 LCD0 all taken. Not to mention my PS3 and 360 (Those are the only 2 things that can't...

    Out of the blue signal loss? 129

    wow... who programmed that monstrocity. I would have the box only focus on the signal that's currently in use. So if Im watching channel 5 and it relies soley on signal XYZ, I shouldn't get that message if signal ABC goes out. Thanks, I'll get rid of my OTA... I rarely every use it anyway.

    Out of the blue signal loss? 129

    quick question... I'm not watching an OTA channel.. I'm watching HD Bravo or Hallmark or a pay channel. I rarely watch OTA... maybe just disconnect my OTA to fix?
