Tune to an mpg4 local and then tune to 498
I remember when I was a kid and we got our first color tv. That was the best thing going. Then in the mid 90's when I got Directv the picture was so clear compared to ota that it was amazing. Now we have HD, can't imagine what it will be in another decade.
Guaranteed that the installer they send will never have heard of the 103 sat and have no idea how to correct the alignment. I'll bet a weeks pay.
Joe Avg will not put up with this. Not sure I will much longer.
Holographic HD images sound pretty nice to me. Let's tell D* to scrap all of this and start working on the future!!!
That's somewhat incomplete - apparently some of the NEW Spaun powered switches are wideband compatible and should work. Older ones of any brand will not.
You are right and if the setting is gray it is fine. I am not getting side bars with this Congrat screen.
Rather than betting a week's pay, throw a few bucks to a local independent dealer/installer and get the job done right.
i just went to check my signal and HR20-700 box froze.
Bye, Have fun with cable. Bet they will treat you better.
Maybe I should put a sign out on my front lawn saying:
"Directv dish adjustments, $150"
Hello. You must be Joe Slightly Above Avg. Nice to meet ya.
Another reason why I've preferred to do all the work myself (unfortunately, that includes paying "full price" for all equipment as well).
How much do you charge to fly to Chicago to do some adjustments!?!?!
That's where I draw the line. $1000 for an HR10-250, another $150 for the HR20-700. Bugs galore, missed deadlines, been flat out LIED to by D* about the availability of HD RSNs in Maine, and now this. This one is on them.
I've been a customer since 1997. They start losing customers like me and its time to short the stock.
I swear, D* has some of the most whiniest customers I've ever come in contact with.
Maybe, maybe not. But at least with cable I would have had NESN in HD all summer. And would have avoided the fight with my wife over the larger dish on the roof. And the cost for the DVR. And the bugs. And now this.
I do as well...and what I'm not comfortable with I have a local trusted independent guy. Yes, I pay a little more, but it is well worth it to me in the long run, and really a drop in the bucket compared to what I pay DirecTV in a year.
I was raised to believe "there ain't no free."
Damn straight! Why they even expect their installed dishes to pick up 5 satellites! Ingrates, I tell ya!
Thanks. I called DirecTV to make sure that they install a new WB68 when they show up on Monday.
I noticed on DirecTV's website they're telling folks to tune to 498 and see if they have the slide and if they have a gray or blank screen to call them.
You can see it if you click on the DIRECTV HD link, go to the equipment tab, and select B-BAND CONVERTER.
So, they seem to be receptive to people calling in about the problem.
