Installation going okay. I install it by myself after calling the local satellite store and they're telling me they would charge $60 for the installation. Getting about 82 on the signal strength, don't know if that's any good, but that's the best I could manage after hours stand on the ladder in the sun. Compare to cable, the sound is so much better. The picture is a bit worse than the local cable (ATT). The satellite receiver seem to be hot all the time, even when its off, weird. One thing really buggin me about this is when I watch TV late at night, and most of the program like TLC, Discovery I wanna watch is in paid program mode in satellite! Seem like there are 3 hours diffences between the time the program on in the satellite and the one show in the paper. Is there any way to get around this? Or I just have to watch it a bit earlier. I live in the west coast by the way. I don't know, I may have to switch back to cable after I am done with this 1 year deal if those cable guy could give me a box with digital audio out.
