"Your error" is right. You can order triple LNB multi bird dishes from Circuit
City for $99.99 for DirecTV. Do you need the URL?
I'd tell you how much Best Buy is selling them for right now but their web site
is dragging ass.
When did this happen? Three years ago I installed a four receiver system at my
father's beach house. The receivers all belong to me.... I got them at Best
Buy, along with the dish.
I needed to be the one to do the installation, rather than them... otherwise
they'd have discovered that my father didn't live in a nearby city as he
claimed. He wanted local stations for City X, 20 miles from his home. Because
he lived in Town Y, they said he lived in a different demographic viewing area
and he would have to get local stations from City Z... 70 miles away... a place
he never goes. Unacceptable.
So we fixed him up with a dummy mailing address; he gets the locals from where
he wanted; DirecTV gets paid online every month. Everybody's happy. Nobody
gets cheated out of money. But obviously their agenda isn't the same as ours.
Too bad for them.
Current DTV HD setups consist of the 5-LNB dish, WB-68 multi-switch, H-20
receiver, and an add-on B-Band converter. The 3-LNB dish will work for some
HD content, but not all.
DTV rolled out new HD channels at the end of Sept, none of which are
accessible with the 3-LNB dish. What you have is folks dumping their 3-LNB
dishes on ebay because they upgraded to 5-LNB.
DTV is planning to have 70 HD channels by the end of Oct. and 100 channels
by the end of the year. I have the current DTV HD setup, and the HD looks
*sweet* on my 42" Plasma.
