What is the record number of dishes dishnetwork had to install for a customer
There should never be a situation where more than 2 dishes are needed, though someone could *choose* to use more, for example, to solve a line-of-site issue.
I would guess that if you tried to pick the worst combination, you could need three dishes.
I suppose that if you were trying to shoot through a 2' hole in a wall, you might need four if you subscribed to just the right internationals and HD.
Or if someone wanted some PI content that was only available on an one satellite.
I have three dishes. The installer said it was the only way to do it.
When he came there was one E* dish from the former owner of my townhouse, another one from my neighbor who didn't use it because switched to cable, and a new one was installed. They are all Dish 500. I wasn't (and still I am not) very happy with 2 dishes on the garage roof and one more on the deck, but apparently there was no alternative.
I thought the installer was lazy and instead of removing/replacing the existing ones, he went for the easy route.
Are there any disadvantages (PQ) in combining signals from three dishes?
Do you think I can ask E* to streamline the installation?
Did I win anything? :hurah:
At the direcTV side there would be a hypothetical change of a 3 dish setup. Never seen one though.
Did an HD upgrade this past summer to add 61.5 to existing 119/110. The problem was the big elm tree had blocked 119 and left 110 marginal. Customer agreed to have 3 dishes all spread out on his roof in order for it to work. -Had to even move the orginal dish just to gain 110. Had this needed 118.7, it would truly be a dish farm.
As far as signal quality, it's likely better since each dish/orbital is peaked individually.
We have apartment buildings around here with a dozen or more dishes. There should be some way to use one or two sets of dishes for everybody.
Had a cust today with 3 dishes, 118.7, 110/119 and 61.5 but the last one was out of commission?
I have had my fair share.
I'm down to two now, both I mounted near ground level.
I have three dishes, by choice. I installed them all myself, so Dish was not involved. I have an 18" Dish 300 pointed at both 61.5 and 110, and a 24" dish at 119.
30" each 148, 119, 110 and 61.5. 1 meter for H2 and 72.7. AT9 and 30" for D*. 76 CM each G16 and G18. 7.5' C/Ku and 10' C/Ku.
All installed myself and all on the roof, flat as it is.
Not sure where this came from. No, it's not me lol
There's a way, but it means that the apartment complex owners must pay for the installation, upgrades, and maintenance, and work with a company to manage connects and disconnects. Most complexes don't want to spend the time and money, and end up letting their customers have their own dishes.
And, no, it would NOT be possible to do it any other way. Without management and rules, you'd have tenants disconnecting other tenants, people "upgrading" or completely removing dishes that others needed, etc. And since most smaller apartment complexes don't want to pay for anything, and since all MDU jobs are subcontracted out, there's not much money in them to make it worth doing all the work.
3 Five foot dishes...
Getting pretty common here in Puerto Rico with HD channels (110, 119, 61.5).
Then again we have cement roofs...
I think he's trying to steal tv :lol:
i've seen 2 single LNB Direct dishes used to pick up 110 and 119 from Dish. i would have thought LNB technology would be proprietery.
Some is, some isn't.
All I see is the dreaded red X. :crying:
