    Install SWM dish with anntena

    Are you able to diplex an OTA over the sat feed between the dish, and the swim? Put up an antenna for FM, and would like to get it into the house without running a separate coax.

    Dish to Direct questions

    I too have just recently switched from E* to D*, and can say the speed isn't quite there in the D* equipment. However I will say after about a week it has sped up considerably. My HD receivers (not sure the model numbers) have the new HD UI, and it's nice. My HR34 is still on the older UI (I...

    Still waiting and waiting and waiting for the HD GUI...

    I too wish they would hurry up on the new UI. I had a HR34 with two HD receivers installed last weekend, and while I haven,t gotten too much time to play with it yet I do like what I have been able to mess with. Really so far my only complaints are the UI (it just looks dated), and the...

In fact when I was installing (only on HD TV's) I used to ask the customer which they like better, and 99% choose the three hour guide. About the only ones who didn't where elderly who found the smaller type hard to read.

    underwhelmed by Direct so far :(

    I just signed up with D* today. Everything seemed to go smoothly until I got my confirmation E-mail. The order was totally wrong. What I wanted (and thought she set it up to get) was the new HR34 receiver, and two HD receivers. With a total start up cost of the $99 for a new customer with a...

    NEW Directv INSTALLATION w/ used Receivers?

    I have been thinking of switching from Dish myself. I have Three TVs but the third will be a mirror. I want the new MVR set up with two DVRs. I assume I will get two HR24's (yes I realize there is a upgrade fee). Are they going to give me some old junk, or would I get the HR24's with the way I...
