I tried to use dishnetwork's online configuration system. What I wanted was one vip622 dvr tuner for my big hdtv in the front room (i want just 1 tv hooked up to it to take advantage of dual tuner switching), 1 sd tuner in another room, and then 1 hd tuner in a third room. 3 separate tuners, no wires down the hallways or additional transmitters to get signals between rooms - that is an immutable requirement for me.
When my order confirmation came, it was 1 622 hd dvr and 1 sd dvr, with wires running down the hallway and only one hdtv watching an hd broadcast at a time. I called dishnetwork, got some guy in bangalore, proceeded to confuse him until he connected me to colorado and discussed the problem with the order configuration. They refused configure the order as i described above, even though i told them if it couldn't be done that way, no order from me. :nono2: So, the order was cancelled (but they keep my $250 charged to my debit card until they feel good and ready to refund it).
Is there something I'm just not getting about satellite tv?
Why could this not be done? I live in an apartment with very cool honeywell genesis wiring throughout (power, cat5e, 2 coaxial, and 2 pots utp to every room) and all they need to do is place the dish on my master bedroom porch and flat coax through the double doors to cable center in my walk-in closet.
