    Recently my family has experienced some cable tv glitches like some channels not showing on a regular basis, and some video quality problems. My family is seriously considering finally switching to DirecTV, but unfortunatley we have many trees surrounding our house, that I think might not allow for us to receive a decent signal, if any at all. I was wondering, is there any way I, or a DirecTV installer, could test before installing the DirecTV to see if the trees really will be a problem and we can get a good signal? I appreciate any help.

    Let me share my story. I moved about a quarter mile up the block from one house to another. I had Direct TV at my old house and tried to take advantage of their moving plan--you leave your old dish where it is and they install a new one for free (and try to sell the new owner on the old dish). The Direct TV installer told me that he couldn't get a signal at my new home, too many trees. So I went with digital cable. Out of curiosity I had a private installer come out and look at my situation. He told me that he could get a signal but I decided to stay with digital cable and a high definition box. Different companies with different equipment will come to different conclusions.
