SimpleSimon said:Yup - I never point through trees (at a customer's house - see http://www.satelliteguys.us/photopost/showphoto.php/photo/23/cat/500/ppuser/3005/sl/s for MY 61.5 LOS). The signal can NOT penetrate any real foliage.
birddoggy said:Ha, I guess I should have clarified on that... a real installer won't point it through a tree... at a customer's house
I cant say much though... my 61.5 is also pointing through a tree.... i just dont watch those channels when its raining...

Looked like the dish was pointing directly into a birch tree but he assured me the sats were elevated much higher. All of the sudden I can't pick up any HD channels on 199. Replaced the 622 thinking that was the problem but to no avail. Finally had him come out and put it back on the roof. No problems now.
