To paraphrase the late Jonathan Harris "Oh the pain, the pain...". Due to the unavailability here in Northern Michigan, I have to wait till Wednesday. I guess it could be worse.

They tried to rescedule yesterday, but the manager called me back and assured me they'd have an 811 for Friday. Today he called and said they never shipped it. Got the 61.5 switch and LNB thingie added on to the work order at no charge though!

If your in need of a 811 quick we have them in stock at DishStore.NET since everyone canceled to get the $149 deal. :)

He says they'll have it on Monday, for a Wednesday install. Guy seems pretty cool, even told me what to tell Dish to get the 61.5 doohickeys for free. He's going to hook up my ancient Sony B1 D* Dish with it so I can get CBS and HBO. So I guess I can't complain.

Don't want to be pessimistic here, but my 811 order today resulted in an install scheduled for tomorrow morning, less than 24 hours from order to install. I fully expect to be rescheduled, but I'm ready just in case.

Boy oh boy am I ready! :)

That's right, the very first HD on my new Panny. Oh boy, oh boy! Ran 2 new
RG6 today. One to feed my 7200, and one for the 811. Did I say NEW Panny?

:dance:

Oh boy, oh boy! Starting to get immature here...I'm a 10 year old all over
again with a large wooden 9" black & white OTA only TV with chronic vertical
sync problems wa-a-ay back in 1948. Now a 53" 16:9 HDTV in only 55 years.

Hmmm. That's less than an inch per year progress. Bummers! :rolleyes:
