Have you tried tightening it?

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Well, be that as it may, spartanstew's suggestion should help with what you are after.

This is why you were 1st recommended to tighten it. The word you are looking for is lose, not loose...and if you truly live in Canada it is against FCC regs and Direct's TOS for you to be getting D* service in Canada. I would highly recommend not posting here again, they have ways of finding you.

Thanks for the tip. I don`t think they`ll find me ,I've had programming since 1996 and I'm sure they like the 150$ I give them every month. But I thank you anyway. LATER DUDES

Big brother is always watching... I bet he gets shut off now, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the office of signal integrity was a regular lurker around here. :D

And if they read this thread: Hi guys! :hi:
