I'm one of those rare people that still hasn't gone to a DVR, but am about to. I'm ordering my cable this weekend to have it in place for the installer........If I go that route, which leads to my question: Am I any better off just getting one on Ebay? I've seen then brand new in a box form sellers with good feedback for about $225 plus shipping, so around the $250 neighborhood. Is that a good price?Of course I would still need the multiswitch, correct? I know you can get the whole thing for free if you get the right CSR in the right mood, or play the retention game, but read some posts leading me to believe they are clamping down on that kind of thing. Last service call I ended up getting my sidecar 5 lnb switched out for the slimline because of odd transponders out on 103b. Anyway, double checked after the guy left and he hadn't tightened the bolts for the elevation adjustment. No big deal, but it seems like it's always something with those people. I know they will come back out if it's wrong, but I see a lot of people that post here never have installers at their house. What I'm getting at is whether or not a lot of you do it yourselfers feel I'm just as well off getting the stuff my self and doing it? My dish is already aimed........I'm just hooking up a multiswitch, and running some cable, and putting new ends on, right? Anyway, I'm rambling...........curious what the consensus might be. Oh, I have put up a couple dishes before and ran cable and whatnot, so it's not completely foreign to me. Opinions greatly appreciated.Thanks in advance!
