Well, I think the time is near for me to upgrade to HD equipment. I think the LNB on my 12 year old 18" dish is starting to act up. I replaced it once about 6 years ago. I recently noticed my signal strength has dropped to around 76%. I tried to realign the dish with no better out come than 76% on both tuners. I've been able to maintain around 96 to 98% since I first installed it back in '97. I have also lost channels I used to get, DIY, TLC, and a couple others. They are so pixulated you can not watch them. Both receivers experience the same issues. Tried straight runs from the LNB to each tuner, same issues. Has DTV changed compression on some of their channels?
Anyway all my equipment is owned and self installed and I don't want to throw money into old technology to trouble shoot. ( Even though a new dual LNB is only about $15 online ) I'll call DTV soon and see what the current subscriber offer is to take the HD plunge.
Any one have suggestions as to the best TV to get in the $1500 range? I'd like one in the 52" to 55" size range if possible. Any heads up on BlackFriday deals this year?
I know this may not be the place for this post, but the UTV'ers here have been a great wealth of advise over the years.
