I was SUPPOSED to have D* service installed in my parents house this afternoon. 1-5 was the time window given. I arrived there around noon to help move the HUGE cabinet from around the 51" Sony set. We had just gotten finished with that process and the phone rang.
It was the installer calling to Re-Schedule!! Supposedly they didn't have some sort of filter for the HD receiver (something I had never seen mentioned before). In further talking with the installer about this it apparently has something to do with the fact the our locals are on the 72.5 sat & the filter is needed to receive those channels on the HD Box.
I then went on to tell them that I was not requesting local channels from them (my parents have a perfectly working antenna already) & to have them come out anyways without the filter they didn't have.
NO GO!! They for some reason couldn't/wouldn't come out at the scheduled time stating they couldn't change the order now & that I would have to call D& directly and re-order everything!!
I know I'm prob just ranting but this all seems ridiculous to me, all I want is the HD box, Tivo and the Dish which they state that they have....
One question? what is this filter supposed to do? and/or why is it needed?
