    Quick Install

    yeap, you are right, but lower wages bring lower skills of work. The top techs are getting out of this business and finding different kinds of work. "No real question here, other than, how stupid does an installer have to be to disconnect a existing cable in an apartment building to make it...

    How do you make a roof mount leakproof?

    Tar patch, Bishop tape, and pitch patch are the same, just different company call it differently. It is mandatory for DirecTV and Dish network’s techs to use bishop tape. Bishop tape works very well in creating a sealed on the roof and sticks to the asphalt shingles very will and holds up...

    Adam Lambert closes AMA's in a weird way

    He is a great singer but the french kissing that guitar dude and getting a simulated blowjob from his backup dancer is too much, especially for public tv and coming from a family oriented brand like American Idol. I glad he didn't win on American Idol. Decency in public tv is going down the drain.

    hmmm.... hooking up 110 119 118 129 to a 4x1 DiSEqc and a NFusion Box , hmmm, something wrong with this picture.

    negative, 118 (1F port) and 119(2D port) are on seperate ports, and 110 is on the right bracket (if face toward lnb) and the 129 is on the left bracket. Since you also asking about NFusion FTA boxes on the other thread, I think you are referring to non-OEM Dishnetwork lnb where the single port...

    7 1/2 hour install and still nothing

    I feel sorry for the customer because of the sale representative making a sale, but I can relate to the tech. I think all experience techs can relate to what the tech is going through. This is too common for Directv and Dish Network sales partners to mess up, miss inform, and make outrages...

    The neighbor shouldn't be hold accountable, it is the installer that use his dish. The neighbor don't know anything about satellite installation and rely on the Directv installer. The installer gets pay to install a dish and runs the lines. It is require for the installer to put one dish to...

    Neighbor taking satellite signal??

    I would too. After I cut the cable, I would call Directv, and file a complaint on the lazy ass installer who plug the cable to your dish.
