I'm bummed. 2 problems. I had a scheduled appointment today for my H20/5-LNB/6x8 multiswitch installation. The contractor (from Chantilly, VA.) called and cancelled. I have to call and reschedule w/D*. I have an existing 3-lnb, 5x8 switch, and HR10-250. The work order was basically written wrong. They were supposed to come out WITH the new MPEG4 hardware (listed above)while I got to keep my existing hardware. Instead of the work order indicating what i already had installed(3-lnb, 5x8, Hr10-250) and it was to be replaced, it was indicating that that is what was supposed to BE installed. Did that come out right? Here's the kicker. I was told that D* has not started shipping the 5-lnb to the D.C. DMA yet. That should be taking place Dec. 8th. As well as when they will start broadcasting local HD to D.C. Therefore they would not be installing any MPEG4 upgrade equipment until at least the 8th of Dec. I may be able to reschedule the install FOR the 8th, however, he also stated that I may not be able to schedule and on the books my installation UNTIL the 8th. I asked if they had done any installs in the D.C. area yet and he said no and that the techs will be in training over the next few days. I guess I'm going to be a guinea pig. The contractor was very nice and straight forward. Also seemed to be very honest If he didn't have an answer he would simply say he didn't know. I'll be calling D* next. This is getting interesting to say the least. Wish me luck. Ill keep guys informed.
