I have a friend who is a DTV HD customer that - a couple years ago - moved to a location that had only an existing SD dish. DTV wanted to install HD dish for him but since at that time it was temporary move and his landlord wasn't real keen on having someone climbing on his roof - he refused the dish upgrade. Not long after, he bought a lakehouse - about an hour or so away. He installed a new HD dish and connected his HD DVR to it and it worked without any problems. He's recently decided to make his "temporary" place permanent. DTV told him he can't have HD service with the SD dish. His landlord still doesn't want anyone to "mess around on the roof" even more so now than a couple years ago. So now he's stuck with SD signals feeding his HD equipment at BOTH locations. He asked me what I thought he should do. Since he has no land line and uses only a cell, I suggested that he call DTV from his lakehouse (with the HD dish and HD DVRs) and tell them he's actually at his service address (with the SD dish) and tell them that *he* installed an HD dish (that matches his lakehouse install) and ask them to turn on HD service again. Since all the equipment at this location is HD, I figured he'd be able to do what they ask him to do to validate that he's seeing and HD signal. What do you think?
