    been reading this forum for awhile but never posted before so i decided to share my experience with you guys. i also live in an apt complex, i'm on the last floor (3rd with balcony) and before i pulled the trigger and set up installation with Directv i sent a written letter to the main office asking if it was permitted to have satellite dish installed. i got a reply really quick allowing me to have it under the condition that it would be installed inside the balcony only. awesome. on the day of the installation like half way through it the onsite manager showed up and tried to stop it! but as soon as i told him i had a letter from the main office allowing me, he immediately backed off. i printed off the FCC amendments page and put it together with the letter i got just in case he tried to come back and say somenthing. one happy directv customer here :)

    LV,
    I am a DTV installer and I have found this to not only an entertaining thread, but a very informative one as well. I often encourage people to fight for their right for DBS. This gives me more info for the masses.
    Thanks and keep up the fight.

    None, mainly because I won my battle. I wanted to let sleeping does lie and hold a formal FCC petition in reserve if they continued to cause me problems.

    Have you gotten any "Refer A Friend" credits from others in the complex who have signed up?

    Does this mean I can have Directv install a dish on the house I rent even if the landlord doesnt want a dish installed on the house?

    Not a good idea. Of course, the DirecTV wouldn't necessarily know that it's a rental house. But you're at risk with your landlord if you violate your lease.
