I live 100 miles south of San Francisco. Several years ago I "moved" so I could get the Bay Area locals via DIRECTV (my locals weren't available at the time). I'm now ready to upgrade to HD, but I don't want to give up the Bay Area locals because they are HD while my locals (which are now available on DIRECTV) are not. I'm guessing if I call DIRECTV to set me up with new equipment and an install they will realize my real geographic location and switch me to my true locals. So...either I need to do the install myself or find someone who will do it under the table. From what I've read, pointing the 5LNB dish is more complicated that the single LNB I currently have, but not impossible. Should I try it myself or find someone to do it for me? If I should find someone, how do I find them without calling DIRECTV? Thanks for any feedback.
