Dad said his WNC SWM LNB and HR24-100 were having some stuttering issues last night. It has been in the single digits here lately.

I still think you are exaggerating I work in the same market as you and close 3-4 jobs a day working 6 days a week and am not seeing SIN7s on my work much less the amount of service calls you claim are coming from Des Moines. I almost exclusively do SWM installs.

I'm installing the same equipment as you and having nowhere near the widespread problem you are claiming exists.

In another thread you claim to have 30 of your installs coming back to you with problems. That's over a full week of customers having issues. There isn't a tech in the Des Moines HSP warehouse with that many FSRs or SIN7s. You're exaggerating the problem and that doesn't help find or fix anything.

thanks for your concern.....

im not exaggerating anything, these are only the ones I "know" of, i didnt include all the lnbs in the minneapolis area going bad, we ship the equipment from here up to there, we have a guy running up there once a week. He probrably has another 15 or 20 up there that im not including those.

My office just called me yesterday and said we have to find the addresses that 60 lnbs came from and now i have to go through and try to remember which ones were mine. So if anything im only covering half the lnbs, theres over 60 just from our little retail store.

Im not sure why anyone would post up with no knowlege and claim someone is lieing about something, make the phone call if you wish, call dsi in des moines.

I still have no idea what you are talking about with a tech in des moines......its a warehouse not an install company.

And for having a "full week" of issues.....wow your way off, its been 2 months straight.
