Ok so no go.... Still not 100% sold on the tech or the LOS issue. But I guess more sold on it....
So a little more clarification on why he is the only one. Our local install place, does not do installs. They ONLY use Sub-Contractors. Which is what he is. So DirecTV uses a Subcontractor, and then that Subcontractor uses a Subcontractor.
We got up on the roof together. And there is a tree 160' away (across the street) that is giving the issues. He told me that up here we need to see 9/9.5/10 degrees elevation for the sats. 10 is fine, 9.5 is fine, but at about 9.2 the top of the tree is in the way.
He also said the Dispointer App for the Iphone is inaccurate. And according to the Dishpointer all while I am on the roof, this tree (or any trees) are an issue.
He explained to me about this point system that they are graded on. And by doing an install that could have issues, he could be docked points and get less jobs. Which I appreciate. If that is your way of life, you need jobs to make money.
But then he told me that if I still wanted to pursue it, to call another company, and they would probably do the install. Mainly because they are known for just "wanting to get paid".
But this is why I couldn't get a second opinion. Because the local contractor, doesn't contract with anyone else in my "area".
So I am THINKING of calling this other place (they are only open M-F). At least to try a second opinion. On their web-site they do re-sell DirecTV, just not sure how that would work out. As in are they able to just take the Work Order from DirecTV?
Opinions? Even if that opinion is, stick with cable. I will take that
