I did a search, and apparently we have this conversation every few months.
I really hate conformity and commonality. I think we all know what we are dealing with with these abbreviations. Not too many people want to talk about purely digital television here.
It does help in communication though.
But is it D* or D**? I've seen people use D** and it just ain't right!
Y & whn abbv. R'nt knwn, or /used, comm. sufrs.
Sorry, that's too abbreviated for us fossils that don't text message.
Even though your apartment faces east, you may be able to use a pole or something else. I had to do that when I lived in Massachusetts. I set up a little pole and mounted the dish on it. I had the pole angle enough that I was able to get the picture.
even though your apartment FACES east, that may not be to much of a problem if the dish has to aim SW. Do the dishes mounted in your apartment complex kind of jut out from the building?
My brother's apartment complex has DirecTV dishes all over the place, and some of them have the arm mounted to the front of window, aimed as far out from the building as it can at a 90 degree angle, and then turned back to the southeast (I'm in Nevada). Since you are in Florida, you get to aim higher off the horizon then we do as well.
Best bet? Sign up, and then the tech will survey your install site for feasibilty first when he shows up. If there is absolutely no line of sight, then you can't complete the sign up, with no loss to you.
exactly. And the whole text message phenomenon has created a vast lexicon of "standard" abbreviations. Amazingly, once learned, they allow thumb conversations.
And since I don't text message, so I have no idea of what you were "saying".
Yes, and when abbreviations aren't known or used properly, communication suffers.

Good link, VOS.
Net acronyms is missing "WTF?", however.
Some just come too easy.... [as in what the Fu**]
Now, the Fu** I understand, it's the D** I can't figure out!
I can't say I've ever seen D** used for DirecTV.
I prefer to spell it out.
