Angry Re: DirecTV nightmare continues - Do I need a new dish?

My programmer has DirecTV and ran into the same issues at his house. He needed to replace a new dish like mine.

I want more HD channels but this is a JOKE. DirecTV should be ashamed of themselves.
Have a similar problem with my DirecTV setup at our weekend home in VT. Am getting some of the (both newer and older) HD channels but not all of them, even though we've got a new 5 LNB dish that was installed less than 3 months ago! AARRGGHH!! Their idiots on the phone don't seem to have a clue and I'll have to wait until the week after Thanksgiving when we're up all week to get one of their "technicians" out to see if they can resolve this.
