I will get the 3 LNB myself, then, and have it ready for him. If he gets cranky, I'll have him align the dish, take a deep breath and install it myself. I've done it before, but the pitch on this roof is a little fear-inducing. Still, my mother lives with us, and I'll face down the roof if need be, just so I don't hear her complaining about missing "The Young and The Rest...

thanks for that heads-up. It's been so long since I've had to deal with any issues with the dish/eq that I am a bit out of the loop. I have had some real e xperiences with DirecTV technicians....for example, when the guy came to install my dish when we moved: Big fella rolls out of his truck and proclaims "I don't climb ladders. Where do you want the dish?" :smileylaugh: ...

It's not an easily accessed dish; I will leave it up to a technician. Good to know that we might be able to squeeze more time out of the satellites....and if lightning would only strike a couple of trees in my neighbors' yards, I'd be all set up. Thank you so much to all of your for your help.

I know that in set-up, I choose (04) Slimline 5 with a multi-switch. It's been so long since the install that I truly can't remember.

Ladies and Gentlemen: I still have a house full of company, so I hope that you will enjoy this way of viewing the readings. Each screen shows for approximately five seconds, and you may pause to examine more carefully. And please ignore the penguin wearing a scarf seen in the bottom left of some pictures.

Well, "refused" is a bit harsh. :smileyshocked: I have a house full of company with 12 kids of different ages right now, all occupying seats in front of the TVs. If I were to interrupt the movies, Phineas & Ferb and football to go into setup, riots would ensue. When we have the house to ourselves, I'll be able to check signal strength. Thank god for smartphones or we woul...

We have had issues with satellite access for quite a while. That was the main reason for switching to HD DVRs many years ago, because we lost access to the locals on the SD feed. If that is what triggers this guide loss, this may be the end of the road for DirecTV at the ole homestead, because installers insist there is no place on the property to get a better signal. Tis...

My home has 5 HD DVRs in it. Due to a lackadaisical and spotty internet connection, the Genie is not an option for us. About a month ago,the Guide started disappearing on the machines. Each one was affected, but not always at the same time. However, if it happened while we were out, recordings are missed and tempers flare. :smileysilly: MOST times, it could be restored by...
