    • That's because we import everything these days, and it's cheaper to replace than repair. The downside is that those who install/service these systems never gain any knowledge of how the system actually works, or how to repair it.  Everything is a just a chain of black boxes.  When was the last time you saw a TV repair shop?  Telephone repair shop? Stereo repair shop?  It's sad, a giant step backwards for domestic skill & knowledge, but true.
    • We will also be in the NE corner of the parking lot dry camping with several others. As said above, plan on being there when they open on Wednesday
    • Hello I just signed up so I'm very new here ....

    • We fought problems with reception on various satellites and transponders for about 18 months. Sometimes we would receive even transponders and sometimes odd. Every so often everything worked.  I thought the problem was in the Winegard antenna itself. Finally was in contact with a Winegard Tech, she was good, who was willing to talk through the whole problem. Solution was not the antenna assembly.  Then she had a discussion with several "old" techs in her office and explained the problem as a cable connection issue. 14V for even transponders and 18V for odd transponders. My question is: Why hadn't any contact explained that simple clue before?.  Called Mr Satellite in Nashville as we were going to be there a week for a submarine crew reunion. Setup an appointment for a Friday. Early morning phone call cancel the shop visit. The tech would come to us by noon, an emergency repair on a installed multiple TV system. Raised the antenna to be ready for the repair. Of course everything worked. Cancelled appointment. But we now had the tech phone number provided by the father. Several phone calls over the next few days fixed the problem. Replaced the cabling within the turret, replaced cabling from LNB(s) to turret head, removed and cleaned every connection and reconnected with dielectric grease. Magic happened. Everything worked as it was designed. Passing this along to prevent someone else from having the same frustration. I have found that very few techs understand anything about the equipment they are servicing.   The merely replace stuff until the system is working.  Bill
