Thought I would write and tell you my success story. I ordered the HD-Stacker over a year ago, and have been waiting for the person to come install since then. Finally, at the beginning of December, after Dish erased all of my recorded programs from the Hopper (the final straw with them), I gave up waiting and decided to install the stacker myself. I am 73 years old and it might be a story to share, albeit not a very long one, since it went so smoothly.
Last week, I finally found a day that the weather would allow me to place the antenna in the yard. So I printed off the instructions, found a screwdriver, and put it together. No problem. It was just a giant erector set but with not as many pieces. Most of them were already done. In fact there were only 12 screws. Mounted it on a pole and took it outside and dropped it into the just retired satellite stand. Screwed the grounding block on side of house and attached cord. Came inside and started attaching the six TV's one by one and scanned channels. I had four of them perfect and then on the fifth I ran out of signal strength. So I then put the booster I ordered between the antenna and the splitter and loaded the last two on. All 6 of the TV's can be played at the same time with an absolutely beautiful picture on all of them. All of the TV's are at least 10 years old.
So if anyone says they are not sure they can do it. Tell them if a woman my age can do it, anyone can.
Thank you for your pre-purchase advice and support. It gave me confidence when I embarked on the installation, that I knew I could call you, if I needed too.
