O' we of the 'highend', how we must 'suffer'! J6P goes to any old B&M can pick-up a sat. dish & rec. for $50 [sometimes two rec.] with free install. However, if we want HDTV it's $500+ for the reciever [the govt. thought it would be under $100. And what did the early adaptors pay, over $1000!?!]. $150 for the HDTV dish [and try to find a unit with three LNB's!]. And $150 to install [or $50 & frozen fingers for DIY]. So J6P is taken care of for $50 and we 'have to' put together our "package" almost against the wish of the providers for $800+! Been though six stores & on the phone/net for parts of three days. Hope the Winter Games are worth all this, and just maybe even catch the Super Bowl in 'poorman's' HDTV. Any stories out there with happy ending? Or an even more hellish route?
