I think I'll have mine professionally installed this time because I really enjoy watching other people work and I know its really fun to have someone look over your shoulder and ask questions when you are working.
The only way I will let them install it is if I do not have to wait forever and a day to get it done and if they provide me with all the dishes and switches needed for the receivers without charging extra somewhere along the line.
I'll play with it. This is the only way to learn. We'll need some reporters also. I've done them all, 500, 61.5. 148, Sat C, D*'s oval, Nimiq 1 & 2. I'm looking for info to start learning. I've spent precious hours, but the knowledge was worth it.
