Installer came out today,He was 1 hour early. My setup now is a dish 1000 on a high tripod mounted on the roof,because of a large oak tree. Direct installer said he could not mount the direct 5 sat. dish on the tripod,he claims it is much heavier than dish 1000,and it would cause a wind issue,tripod could not handle it.Im not sure about that? I will stay with Dish network.Direct credited me for the recievers.
