    Attached is a picture of my roof mounted dish. As you can see it is getting pretty rusty. I was wondering if the protection plan covered replacing a rusty dish. It looks terrible. Driving around, I haven't come across any other dishes that look this bad.

    Another possible option would be to paint it, if that's possible. Can any spray paint be used? photo-3.JPG

    Does the rust affect your reception? If so you should certainly be able to get it replaced.

    If not, you might call DirecTV and ask them.

    No reception problems. I just think it looks terrible and very trashy.

    Over the top suggestion: Get one of those giant wall posters that stick on, and cover it. Or stick on plastic wallpaper, trim to fit.

    Note: I have no experience to suggest that this might not really k.o. reception! Caution advised.

    Others already make such! Not sure I'd want a big head - or whatever- to leer out at me every time I went outside! :)

    Spray paint "NSA" on it.

    You could stencil the DISH logo on it for a little existential dichotomy.
