Hi - I am new here. I have just moved from LA to the San Francisco east bay area. I moved my HD receiver vip 211 and the Dish installer came and put up a new dish on the side of the house facing the top portion of the outer wall. During the dish installation, I told the person that should it not be pointing up to the sky without any obstruction but he said that he is getting a very good signal on his meter and if the signal is good - I will get the best picture. But now its been 2 weeks, I notice that the picture is not as clear as it used to be in LA - the local channels there were clearer than they are here and some of the other HD movie channels are also not very clear. In LA I could see all the lines on the faces where as now the faces have a washed look and a bit hazy. The fine sharpness is not there. I called up the Dish installer, who came back and saw that the meter shows signal strength at about 65, which he says is excellent. I told him maybe if he put up the dish on the roof without any obstruction it may improve but he insists that with the new dish, it does not have to be on the roof and the picture strength is fine. He does acknowledge the picture is not very clear on some of the channels and thinks maybe it is the TV but I feel the dish should be up on the roof to get the best picture. What do you people think? Please help - thanks.
