If you're getting a H20 or HR20 and have HDMI input on your TV D* is supposed to supply the HDMI cable. If the installer doesn't have it ***** back to the CSR's.

I didn't get an HDMI cable... But then again I have a Mitsu big screen with some kind of propritary HDMI that only works with other Mitsu hardware.. My installer didn't even have a spool of coax with him and had to scrounge for connectors. Also someone dropped off my HR20 then left and another tech installed it all.

I had mine installed last night, the installer did put up a support brace.

I have the 3-lnb dish mounted on the eave of my garage roof. My question is does the new slimline dish require the support brace? My dish has never had any sway/wind issues for over 3 years.

When you see the new dish, you will probably WANT the support brace. It's pretty good size...

That may be true. But to place a support brace would mean holes on my garage roof. That's not going to happen! This is the only issue holding me back from upgrading. I guess when D* decides all HD will be MPEG4 I'll have to make a decision of staying or moving to cable/FiOS. I already get locals OTA.

For awhile, D* was broadcasting in the clear the HR20 training/installation video. In the video they say that they are to install the HR20 using the best connection method available, HDMI then component, then s-video, then composit, and they are to supply the cable even though the HR20 doesn't ship with one.
