I foolishly just bought an R15 reciever and re-upped for 2 years thinking we'd be in our apartment for some time, and after we'd move, it'd be into a single family home that we bought or at least rented. Well, then the landlord came through and informed us of 90 days to get out... they're converting to condos and all tenants are being evicted. So we found a condo to move in to... we love it... its bigger, the living room is pre-wired for surround sound... has everything we want. Except the HOA requires dishes to be on the balcony. Two problems. 1.) the Balcony looks south, but its right next to a tree thats pretty dense. Line of sight would be strained at best. However, the balcony is upstairs off the master bedroom, accessed by a sliding glass door. 2.) the owner, our landlord has expressly prohibited any drilling through the walls. I'm not really keen on leaving the sliding glass door open to run wires through to the multiswitch. I'm even less inclined to have wires run all around the house, including down the stairs by an installer who cares more about getting outta there to his girlfriend or whatever (if you can't tell, I've never had a good DirecTV installer... my first one tried to charge me extra because I had a DirecTiVo I purchased @ Circuit City, instead of the generic unit, despite the fact that it required no extra work... second guy refused to run 2 lines to my dual tuner DirectTiVo). Anyway.... DirecTV is of course telling us to pay up for breaking contract.... citing the FCC Rulings.... but not recognizing the limiting factor that I'm renting from a private owner who is restricting the install (I'd run it down the pipe into the water heater if I could.... but I can't). Anyone got any tips?
