thanks the link helped
Did one last week because the Triple sat was on side of roof, and they had a metal roof, so we are not allowed to mount to metal. I had been told that it would work and to my surprise,,, all sats were above 90. She had purchased her own HR21 and was not receiving all hd.
They will work, but you cannot peak the dish nearly as well as you can on a slimline.
I was thinking a good hybrid would be the Phase 3 using a dish network 1000.2 reflector, it would be interesting to try it. The 1000.2 is about 6" wider than the phase3and the AZ/EL should bolt right up to it.
Of course, none of these are ever going to pass any DirecTV QC, and you would probably get beaten like a readheaded stepchild if you ever did it as a professinal installer.
This a service call and chargeback waiting to happen. A good chance of a beating as well from the guy that actually has to do it RIGHT the 2nd time. :nono2:
It's one thing to do this for your own house, when YOU are responsible and YOU know what the limitations are. It is absolutely unthinkable to set up a customer that way, and is in no way supported by DirecTV. As an installer, you need to either be able to do the job all the way right, or not at all. In-between is "Chargeback Land."
