Living far enough away from Tampa to only get the HD stations on a good day I decided to switch from E* to D* when I saw they had HD Locals available. When I called D* a couple of weeks ago they said 1 to 5 days to get it installed which would let me watch the Super Bowl and the Daytona 500 in HD. After 4 days I heard nothing from the installers so I called D* again and they said they would check into it. The next day Advanced Satellite called and said I was scheduled for March 8th. I told them that D* told me 1-5 days so I called D* back to see what was going on. I was told that was the earliest they could install it so I said "Cancel my order and give me back my money." So much for the Super Bowl....maybe I'll get a good bounce and be able to pull it in on my antenna.
