after reading and researching hd sat, i gotten kind of discouraged w the whole business. first i looked into voom. well i'm way too far from the ota tower, so no networks. then i look into dishnet. after getting them to offer me an 811 at $150. iread numerous posts that its a piece of junk, unreliable and needing constant tweaking, downloading, etc..., not to mention a way too dark sd picture. so i check out direct tv. similar complaints of all types. please correct me if my perception is wrong. can i reasonably say that the technology is in its infancy and will get better over time. i really dont want to have to fool w the tv and the reciever all of the time. i just want to turn it on.
