    Next Poll could be "Do you like the content offered on the 10 new HD channels? Or "is it worth $5"? Or both.

    I won't care after Sunday 'cause the RV does not have an HDTV, the 811 stays at the house. Leaving for a 5 months in Colorado driving tourists on the Jeep trails out of Ouray.

    How about one for:
    "I CAN'T receive a signal from 61.5W and I don't have a dish installed for 148W, but I would install for 148W if VOOM was there!"

    Well, the 4th one takes care of that. We are just trying to tell dish that they REALLY need to mirror them soon!

    Scenarios:
    1) I have a working 61.5 E* dish in my system
    2) I have good line of sight to 61.5 but no dish
    3) I have a working 148 E* dish in my system
    4) I have no good line of sight to 61.5 but could use 148 if I had a dish

    Answers:
    1) Subscribe - All you need is there
    2) Install a 61.5 dish and subscribe
    3) Mirror Voom on 148 so I don't lose my current programming
    4) Mirror Voom on 148 so I can install a dish and subscribe

    If you gave up a 148 dish to get 61.5 select #3 to get your 148 channels back.

    The mirrors are needed for those who (3) already have a 148 dish working and (4) can more easily get 148 than 61.5.

    BTW: Based on the initial stall from the CSRs (saying the channels will not be available for a couple of weeks to existing subs) I see a glimmer of hope that they WILL appear on 148 in the near future. There is some room to wiggle them on the transponders there.

    Ok, I gotta ask, question 2, "I CAN receive a signal from 61.5W and I DON'T have a dish installed for it." How in the heck are 21.74% of the people taking the pole getting the signal from 61.5W if they don't have the dish installed for it?

    Suppose they had a 61.5 dish in a previous life or they can tell they have an unobstructed view.


    I have 61.5 and 148. Seemed like this possibillity was left out of the poll.

    I also have these: 119, 110, 121 and 105. Not on the same receiver at the same time, of course.

    John, would you like me to reset and reword the poll so it makes a little more sense?
