Hello all,About a week ago, the voices on nearly all the HD channels began coming in so low that I can barely hear them (there are a few that come in fine). The music, however, continues at full volume. When I change to the same channel in non-HD, the voices come in perfectly fine. I noticed when I

question about installing 5LNB dish

I'm expecting to have a 5LNB dish installed on a new house. I'm told it requires a tripod rather than a simple mast. Is that what others have experienced? WInds where I live can get to 70mph in winter storms. I don't want the thing torn from the house.
