Divorce and murder come to mind. I don't recommend the second option.

stephimoe zoran,

Its not your better half, its your worst.

Leave the dish where you originally had it.

Thinking of leaving the dark side?

Then you'd have to change your name to Anik F1 or something or Anik the 1st.

At least you'd enjoy less of the horror stories I read about in the other threads.

AvengeR77 Yes the installer will get paid for a site visit.

When you are saying that the Customer might get the call for "Free", if there is no other location for the Dish to go for good signal reception, would the Installer still be paid for his time by Star Choice.?

Moving the dish

I got my dish installed today. Everything went great (or so I thought). The reception is very solid. 2 hours after the installation, my better half decides that the dish is in the wrong spot - too "visible" and is apparently ruining the "look" of our house. The marching orders are to move it back, around 10-12 feet. What are my options? I guess I can call Star Choice and ask for another visit. How much would that cost? Any other ideas?
