    I've been a DirecTv customer for a few years with non-HD service. I want to upgrade to HD and do a self install. When I called, they said there was no way to ship the dish to me and would have to send out a tech. Anyone else have this issue? Is there any way to get the dish shipped? Thanks in advance for any help.

    For a self install HD installation, you either need to accept their install if you want the dish free, or buy your own from a local dealer or solidsignal.com. I bought my SWM dish/lnb from a local dealer for about $100.

    DirecTV does not support self-installs, because they've learned that most of the time, they end up having to come out and re-do everything anyway, and that self-install customers have low satisfaction with the system.

    So, if you *really* must have a self-install, you'd have to buy what you needed from a retailer. No discounts that way, but you'd get the self-install that you wanted.
