Here's your sign
You need TWO dish's one for D* and one pointing that way for locals.:nono:
In some markets that statement is 100% true.
I have a van with the big D* log on the side.
I wear a shirt/jacket with a D* logo on the chest.
I also wear a hat with the D* logo on it.
People STILL ask when they come to the door "what do you want?"
Duh, I'm here to repo your stove. What do you think I'm here for?
This is actually true in some locations.
That's funny, but I can somewhat understand it.
I have lost count the times I have performed an install where the programming wasn't added to the account by the phone company that the customer ordered from.
I ask the customer, "What package did you order when you talked to the phone company?"
"I ordered this one right here," the customer says holding up a DISH NETWORK flyer that they got in the mail the day before. :nono2:
Now that's... :lol: :lol:
My D* HD installer actually told me that HDMI cables don't transmit audio, just video like component and s-video. It is shocking that I know more than these installers and I am far from an expert.
I can't believe this thread is still running.
From CSR: Yes it will be able to dial on your pulse dial line...
Is there still a "pulse" only dial line anywhere?
While you may not have a touchtone phone [I use both BTW], aren't all of the phone systems now tone switching?
Here is one I heard yesterday afternoon when the installer called to reschedule today's appointment for Tuesday!
"The FedEx truck broke down and they were not able to deliver my shipment of HD DVR's today"
5 minutes later, FedEx is at my door with other packages. BTW, There is only 1 FedEx driver for this entire town.
He could've been referring to the Big Rig truck that brings everything to your local FedEx center.
nope.. It's pulse dial only.. send touchtones and it will ignore you
Then "nope" is really "yepper", and I thought I was out in the sticks...:lol:
Back when I got my equipment installed what 4 mos ago the installer swore D* didnt have any new sats going up and the new HD would be delivered via what was already up there.
:lol: FedEx doesn't have big rigs up this way. Big rigs in this area tend to have tree's laying on their backs.
Air packages destined for this area go to Grand Forks, ND than are put on Cessna 208A Caravan I (see photo) who hits a half dozen or so smaller areas like this. Plane arrives about 10:15 and the driver loads everything right in to the van (small one at that) and heads out from there.
consider this .... 1999( approx) .. massachusetts became the FIRST all dial state my town has been a 7 digit town (now 10) was 4 ... for about 6 years i think
I'm right in town (500k in metro area) but my line is grandfathered in.. If I change it I can't get it back...
well then,I guess he's a big fat liar! I live in an urban environment and sometimes forget that the way it is here isn't the way it is everywhere.
