Never give in, buy a 2nd remote and hide it. I have spare remotes for all my receivers. When I insist on watching what I want in the living room, she usually wins out because I have a habit of falling asleep before the end of the movie. That's one of the things that sucks about getting old. Comfort plus warmth equals ZZZZZZZ's! I told my wife I wanted to die peacefully in my sleep, not kicking and screaming like the passengers in my car."The two bud family"
My wife didn't want a bud. No way, no how, not needed. Period!
So I got one that much sooner. I showed her who is boss!
Before I knew it... I could not longer watch tv when she was at home.
So I mentioned a second bud for her in the bedroom.
She didn't want it. No way, no how, not needed.Period!

Told her to go to the bedroom if she wants to watch tv.
After a few days... she returned to watching tv on the dish in the den.
And hides/loses the dang remote when she isn't watching it.
I'm re-thinking the whole 'boss' thing.
Take a look at my profile picture. There are 4 dishes visible, and one up behind my building. This spring, I'm going to paint them all camouflage to make them blend in better. I'll probably spend the whole summer picking up dead birds that fly into them. My wife asked the other day how many more dishes I intend to install. I told her I have an 8 way switch, with three empty ports....does that answer your question?Well, I kinda see her point. In out neighborhood I only saw one c-band dish. Also we are known as the crazy antenna house. But I’ll still put it up, even if SWMBO doesn’t agree.
Yes there are, but they are very expensive. It's not the fact that the dish and mount weighs all that much, it's WIND LOAD. Which can blow the whole dish across your yard if it gusts up around 40-50mph. That could be as much as 400-500 lbs of wind load...
