i can get the 811 at 149. through dishnet. from what i've read on this board, there are some 'issues' with the 811. i really need some advice on this. am i looking at aggravation w the 811. i really dont want to have to be a 'hobbyist' of sorts. i just want to turn it on and watch tv. the guy fr dish who called me in answer to an e mail couldnt have been more helpful. but i would really like to hear fr you guys who have first hand experience. anything you can tell me would be very greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.
