So I bought the HR10-250, and the installers came today to put in the new dish, but couldn't because there was no line of sight to the 3 satellites. It's mostly because of a tree on a neighbor's property. But assuming the neighbor agrees to it, I'm sure that it would cost quite a bit to have someone come and trim the branches 30 or 40 feet in the air. Not to mention that trimming the branches is a bit of a crap shoot. The installers made clear that they could not advise me that trimming the tree would guarantee that I would have line of sight. So unless I have one of whatever the device is that they use to check line of sight, I could have the tree trimmed and still not be able to get the dish installed. And then I wondered about the new satellites in the future. Will they be spread across the sky even further, making more trimming necessary, or even making it impossible for me to receive them because of other trees, etc.? Maybe I'll have to switch to cable after all.
