This is fascinating! Don't let that fellow near your home again. He is not qualified and is doing a disservice to SD by being used by them. From what you have reported, it seems logical that having replaced the dish and receiver, all that's left is the cabling. And I'll bet that's the issue since the cabling sounds awkward to get at, so the installer hasn't studied it. Maybe the cabling was damaged during original installation due to its awkward access?
Keep us informed. This story goes great with my morning cereal. Better than a TV soap opera.
