we had regular def. dish before (obviously) and we have had dish for 8 years now, but they had to put a new dish 1000 up on the side of the house, well he ran a few new cables and left the old ones just hanging off the side of the house (ill put a pic up tomorrow showing the cables), he screwed up our home theater by "thinking" he knew how to set it up, which i had to do once he was gone, the dish isnt pointed right, so we only get half of our HD channels and if there is the slightest cloud we get none,
moral of the story is, ask for a guy that knows what he's doing i guess, hopefully with the new HD DVR they will send a guy that has some sense...
when the hd is working, it is the most amazing home theater experience i must say, so if there's the slightest chance that you can get HD, DO IT
