Installer came out to check my 771 errors.

He replaced the dish, an old sidecar with the latest slimline.
Then he decided I needed a SWM install.
And to top it all off he had two HR24's in his truck, which he also installed.

I'm gobsmacked.

Did those HR24's replace other receivers?
Did you also get an MRV installation?
How much did this cost?

In any case you did well.
DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.

Great story and I know exactly what the expression means. Have some friends from there.
