I am interested in comments from those who have Directv on recpetion loss in inclement weather. Years ago - perhaps a dozen I got rid of Directv due to signal loss. I have had cable ever since. I recently compared prices and I can get a much better package from Directv for less than I am paying for cable. The only thing that "scares" me is reception problems. What I have heard is that mounting on the garage is more stable than a pole which is much better for reception. I have also heard it is a good idea to get their $6 a month plan to make sure they will come out if you need a tweak. Any other ideas or comments are appreciated.
