Looking for a Directv Technician

We need a Directv SWM Slimline satellite for our tailgate on Saturday because ours is not working. We are having a real issue getting a technician to respond. We'd like to just buy one. Any suggestions?? It would be greatly appreciated.

Do you need just the dish? LNB?

Do you have friendly tailgate neighbors that would share either a satellite connection or HDMI?

Can always go to student neighborhoods and start knocking on doors

We only need the dish. We have used a splitter with tailgate neighbors once, but it is difficult. You have to be on the same channel, etc. We would really prefer to have our own dish. It seems impossible to get in touch with a tech to buy one since AT&T took over. The local guy, Brent, was always very good, but he can't do it for Directv anymore.

You can do different channels on a SWM splitter. I have an extra dish, but it's on a rental house and I don't really want to get on a roof today. I know of another one near my work that I scoped out when we bent our dish last year... I'll take a look later and see if it's still there.

Thank you! Fingers crossed. We've had no look. Not to mention it looks like we won't have any close neighbors at the tailgate. I guess people don't like 11am and cold weather.

Most current dishes have a built in SWM built in you just need a port on the dish not a splitter. Don't know these days but Brent, or any of the local places like Audio Video, CEO DefTech would have them. Can always order from Solid Signal but late in the game for tomorrow.
As said before look for them on houses in places that did not have cable but do now like Castle Gate & Creek Meadows, and bring your ladder.
