My folks live in N Ft Myers and currently have Comcast. Just got them a Sony 34" XBR910 and want to get them hooked up with some HD. Figured DBS would be the way to go. People keep saying that rain fade is a real problem in SW Florida, especially during the rainy season. Does anyone out there live in the area? How severe is the problem? Do you lose the signal for hours on end? Will a larger dish help? Is E* or D* better? I know E* has the locals, does D*? Thanks for any info you can provide!
