    mounting question...Directv

    No, I do not need "mounting advice" in my personal life , but in my tv watching life I do need a little bit. We have Directv at home and have the dish unit mounted on a steel post. However, due to weather and ground conditions I was considering putting the dish on the side of the house at the lake home. Does anyone have any specific preference on mounting the dish unit on the house as opposed to a standard ground mount?

    Re: mounting question...Directv

    I prefer not to mount things to houses, but that's just me.

    If it works currently, why change it?

    Re: mounting question...Directv

    We have Directv at our permanent residence and have for about 7 years. It is mounted on a steel pole.
    However we are making the transition from cable at the lake to Directv and I was not liking my chances of digging 4 feet down with frost still in the ground to put a post in at the lakehouse. So, it led me to wondering about mounting it on the house. It would not be my first choice either, but 4 feet of digging into frozen ground did not thrill me.

    You could rent a post hole digger.
