I don't mean all of them Just this particular one I have a friend who also is an installer who had to reinstall my last dish coming over. He also tried to charge me $100 bucks for a splitter.

The splitter was a Zimwell WB68 wound up giving him $20 for lunch.
Just going to take it down and barrel the wires. I'm getting the $14 DVR and its supposed to come with a splitter. Hopefully I'll be able to sell this one on ebay.

I don't fully understand what you want.

What type of TV do you have.
What dish is the receiver set on.

I have a Samsung 46" DLP I have the reciever set to the AT-9 Dish and am only picking up 101. Installer error he didn't want to put it on my roof told me it would be a extra 200 to put it on my roof. So I will be putting it on my roof at dirctv's expense.

how tall is your roof??? they can only charge 75.00 to use a 40 foot ladder.

Well I live in a town house in the front is only two stories the back is three. The kicker is im trying to deal with this and a newborn 2/27 the same day as the install. Fun to say the least.

go stop payment on the check

That is the correct thing to do with the downside of going from 0.5 hearts to 0.0001 hearts.

I got it all resolved. Wanted them to give me the install free but I am to tired to argue.

I'm still having problems told Directv that I would get my friend to do it. He's one of there techs. They gave me $150.00 for the install and $50.00 for my trouble. Not to shabby but still a little pissed.
