Installer showed up Monday, installed OTA antenna, swapped out dishpro twin for legacy quad. Installer would not install second dish or switches to complete install. tuesday, second 6000u arrives UPS. called for RA number to return and have them resend 8SVB module. Wednesday 8VSB arrives I install no problem, most local dt channels coming in ok, though some of the strong power house channels seem to disapear for long periods. Went to BESTBUY tonight (If 1 more person in that store begs me to buy the damn service contract I will beat them to a pulp with my cane) to finally place order for 65" SAMSUNG (ON SALE, GREAT PIC, FREE SHIPPING, FREE LEATHER RECLINER/OTTOMAN) Stay tuned as both Dish and Best buy are due Friday to complete the install. <WILL THAT GIANT TV FIT THROUGH DOOR?> I will say I am amazed how good the HD channels, local and sat look even on the Standard TV, not to mention the dolbt digital 5.1 Oh and no HBO, SHO,or CBSHD till second dish

Ordered the 6000u on Friday 9/19 and it was installed on Monday 9/22. It did not include the 8VSB module. The installed receiver was a refurbished unit. The label on the box stated as such. Called E* on Wednesday 9/24 and ordered the free 8VSB module. UPS tracking says it will be here by Friday 9/26. I did have to pay $8.95 for shipping.
