    I tell people that my 2 installs were perfect.

    First came to install D*

    Second came a month later for the new HD dish/DVR.

    Both were done in an hour and Both were done flawlessly :)

    I think the point is (and it was already mentioned in the thread) that by far, most installs go pretty much exactly as planned - those are the ones we generally do NOT hear about.

    We do hear about the ones that have some sort of issue with them - and as expected, that's human nature.

    I've had DirecTV installers at my house 4 times to do work - 3 went exactly as planned, the fourth needed someone to come back - but they returned in 2 days, got it done right and was not that big a deal. Overall, pretty good IMO.

    Glad everything went well. There's a great installer in my area. No problems at all.

    It took me 4 truckrolls and 5 or 6 weeks to finally get my Slimline dish install completed. The disconnect was with the install company - D* was pretty accomodating.

    I too just had a painless install. The Tech was very curtious and went about his business, In and out in less than an hour, was within his schedule window for arriving and never left a mess. he was surprised at what I knew about installation. I told him that I learned it all on DBSTalk.com!

    I think I helped make the install easier for him by telling him that I wanted the line from the dish to run along the side of the house, through the vent screen into the crawl space, drill a hole through the floor and presto, all complete! Everything is runnimg smoothly. I also had a good experince on my ordering. I ordered on Friday the 20th of July at 1:30 pm. D* took the money out of my account for start up at around 4:30 pm, and my Install was Monday the 23rd between 8-12!

    Man, they were fast on taking that money from my account!!
