I had a settling problem with my DirecTV HD dish after installation so a tech came out to adjust it. I was told it would be free, they charged me $75! What do you do? It is impossible to talk to anybody that can do anything about it. I even had the reciept that said no charge and they still screwed me.
I too have no DirecTV signal and my bank account loves it. $60 for my CM4228, made a cable from spare coax and terminators, $20 for CM distribution amplifier, used spare fence post for mast, mounted in attic.
Highest quality HD available for free!
