I just wanted to let everyone here know what happened with my R15. The installer got really backed up yesterday and didn't get to my house until about 8:30 PM or so. I did not want to send the guy up on the roof that late (he agreed) so he hooked up my R15 with only one input.
He said he would be back around 1PM today (he got here at about 11:40 with an assistant
. I pulled the additional wire through the walls, attic etc. (he said he would have to charge me extra to go into the attic so I said I'll do it just feed me the cable -- he agreed
. We hooked up the second feed and it didn't work. Turned out the the R15 second tuner was bad out of the box. He said this happened a lot so he always carried a few spares. Later on I asked him how ofter the R15's failed out of the box and he said this was the 3rd one. I said well 3 bad out of a few hundred is so bad. He said "it's more like 3 bad out of about 20".
This surprised me maybe it's just bad luck on this installers part but I don't know.
I am sure this was a brand new unit. He opened the box in front of me and I examined it later and it had *NOT* been opened from the bottom (a trick used by some retailers to make a repacked unit appear new).
The installer in my opinion was extremely qualified and did very good work so I don't think it's anything he was doing.
I just wanted to let everyone know and wanted to see if anyone else had this problem.
