WHAT a day, we changed from dish to direct tv and man what an ordeal!!! First it is so cold, bitter in fact. A ton of snow and wind. Then the installer was trying all sorts of spots to put the dish, but with all the trees was finding it hard to get a spot. Finally he used one of the 4x4's on our back deck. So it is hooked-up and programed. But hubby gets pissed because he can not control the volume, starts ranting and raving and throwing stuff. I came to the rescue and did all the programing. But since we do not get our local channels we took another tv and a converter box, put these on the upper shelf. I finally got the programed but no color so I fiddled with it and suddenly we have color!!! Through it all he kept bitching we should have stayed with dish. I was like oh we should pay $104.00 instead of with dirct tv $ 35.00. Now I asked you which would you go with? He is never satisfied, do you have one of those in your house? Smile I guess.
