found one at circuit city, installer is to come out tomorrow to install the new dish. a)Can I install the receiver and activate it before he comes?
b)Will the receiver receive software upgrades from the standard dish?

Figured I would get the most up to date software, then re-boot ..re format or just beat the machine before I get all my programming entered.

Thanks!

If you are going to be getting your locals in HD via this H20, you will need for them to install the new 5LNB dish and you will not be able to set this up as the installer has to use special meter to get exact pinpoint for the satellites that are set up for carrying the local stations in HD. That is unless you plan on using an
outside antenna for your OTA stations....
Yes the installer is doing the 5lnb ...

Thanks.

Why do I waste my time with D*?
masteck came out to install the 5lnb and he was literally afraid to get on the roof..
after 5 minutes, he said "I can not get it to work as the line of sight is not good"...
He has to have a supervisor come out, and they will call me to schedule an appointment....another day out of work for me

WTF send a rookie out to install the most complicated dish?
