FWIW when I called after the roofers were done replacing the roof, Dishnetwork was there
the same afternoon to align the dish. We only lost one night of TV since the roofers didn't finish the same day they started due to having to replace rotten sheathing.

I wouldn't expect same day installs as it would be quite likely the trucks wouldn't have the equipment needed sitting as spares in case of.
Remember when your kids were the TV set's remote control?

Do I need a TV at each Joey on a new install? I am moving and will do the install before I move. I can move a couple 21" HDTV's to use (I have 2 larger TV's that movers will move). They'll just move the TV from one Joey to the next, right? I'm opening a new account (wife's name) at the new house before we actually move (new house is just down the block).

Shouldn't be problem, just make sure you understand how to program the Hopper/Joey remotes to different televisions and don't kink/squish the coax when moving your furniture. I prefer to do it this way so I do not have to work around massive entertainment centers and clutter.
