Okay, Direct TV installation requires a J Pull mounting nest on the side of the house or a roof. You also can pull and mount them on the ground. It requires cementing at home. There's J pull mounting nest design to hold this new KA/KU dish which is, gets all your high definition channels as well as your standard definition channels. The mast has to be perfectly plum so there's no problem with aligning this to the satellites; with there are twenty five thousand miles in the sky so you have to have a very accurate placement of the dish. It has to be pointed with equipment that detects the satellite signal for the strongest possible strength and this dish is a lot bigger than what they used to be using, so they require this supports to hold the mast very stable especially in a high wind conditions and unlike what the cable company states that, "You'll lose the signal in rain or snow", that's really not the case if it's installed properly. Most people cannot do this, it must be installed by a professional installation technician. But it can be done, some people do do it if they have a couple of people, one person down at the receiver looking at the signal strength and the other person up on the roof with some type of communication between the two. So it ends up being tricky, but installation is free for most people if they sign up for a two year contract. As you can see in the back of the dish, there's a lot of intricate gages for proper pointing towards the satellite and thus require some factory training to do it properly and quickly.
