Hello, all,

I received this from a friend of mine and I was wondering if this is a 
systemic problem or would it be a problem with the installation in the 
Fresno, CA area.  If anyone has a suggestion of how he can solve this, I'd 
appreciate it. In theory, this shouldn't be the case, should it? See 
message below.



I just put up an EchoStar/DISH Network 3-LNB monster and was surprised by 
the lower quality than expected of the audio: mostly intermodulation 
distortion to varying appalling degrees, depending on the channel and the 
program content.

I'd like to find out if this across-the-board IM distortion, as well as 
other audio fun I'm
hearing, is a known issue they're working on, or maybe something they know 
but can't fix for various (good?) reasons, or if perhaps no one's noticed.

I suppose it could be an issue with my STB or my installation, but I don't 
think so.
