Color me a happy camper! I've posted some of this elsewhere, but I wanted to put up a thread with some good news instead of some of the gloom and doom Voom posts. If you are still thinking about Voom, consider this. The Zero up front deal is slated to end July 5. Whether it will be extended again remains to be seen. The install is @ no charge, and the receiver is $9.50/m, which will be billed along with the monthly subscription fee. My first bill was $39.90 +$9.50 +$2.40 sales tax for a total monthly of $51.80, which is on CC autopay. I had a good installer, "Bill", an independent contractor working for Cable Innovations out of Savannah. After the initial install on 6/1, he came back 6/14 to reconfigure my 'dish tree' so all three dishes (110/119+61.5 for E* and 61.5 for V*) could reside on my single 6' pole, He put in a new 100'+ outside run for Voom plus, at my request, two additional 100'+ runs of RG6 for my two Dish receivers. When he finished, he cleaned up and left everything neat and well secured. He invited me to call him directly if I had any problems. As far as performance goes, Voom's channels, both HD and SD are coming in very well now. I judge Voom's SD to be slightly better than Dish on both a 7200 Dishplayer and the 811 HD receiver. Initially, it took a little less than a week to get all the s/w upgrades (receiver off at night), and for the initial pixelization problem to go away. SS is in the high 80s and all channels are 5/5 with no more pixing. The Motorola IRD seems to be stable. After two weeks, I can honestly say I'm happy with Voom, especially after they introduced three new HD channels since my install. Adding Voom's 25 HD channels to Dish's meager five (plus SHO-HD and HBO-HD finally gives me a decent selection from which to choose. In summary, I'm pleased with Voom overall and I'm getting just what I expected. It can only get better from here on out, and I am confident it will. If you're on the fence, go ahead and jump in. Do your research if you haven't already and you'll have a pretty good idea what the programming is going to be like and if it will suit your needs.
