Recently I received both a phone call and a post card in the mail from DISH stating that because of "improvements" in their HD technology, they were going to upgrade the receiver I currently have to a newer model and that if I didn't upgrade, I would lose whatever little HD programming I had (I only get about 7 HD channels right now). Now, I live in a small town off the beaten path in New England and my building is situated such that there are major obstacles (trees, other large buildings in back) to a clear field of view for satellite reception. As it is when DISH was first installed the technician that came out was able to mount the dish high enough on the building and point it between 2 trees, and I have little or no problems with reception, except when there's heavy rain. Well the guy came out to do the receiver upgrade and tells me he needs to install a 2nd dish, which I hadn't been told on the phone. When he goes to see where the original dish was placed, he looks at his signal detection equipment and says there's no way I will get a signal on this 2nd dish, and that I'll have to just keep what I have. DISH tells me that they're switching all their HD programming over to another satellite and potentially I will lose all my HD programming which really has me bummed. Right now I hit Satellites 110 & 119. I hope at some point they don't stop using those satellites and make it impossible for me to get satellite reception at all. The installation guy didn't exactly get up on the ladder he just stood on the ground and decided that this new dish wouldn't work because of where it would be have to be pointed. I called DISH back and they agreed to have a manager come out and survey the situation, to verify that I wouldn't be able to get anything. Anybody know the specifics of this "technology upgrade" DISH is undergoing? I really don't want to lose all my HD programming - I've gotten so used to having it! They got me all excited about adding a bunch more HD channels to my lineup, and now they tell me I might lose what few HD channels I have even now.... I had tried DirecTV few months ago, but with them you have to hit 5 different satellites, so they cancelled the install once the guy came out to survey. Has anybody out there ever had to deal with a difficult site situation where there are obstacles? It was recommended that I get an HD stick antenna (?) for my local channels - what are the best indoor HD antennas to buy? Any help would be most appreciated.
