Re: starconnect down 9/1 ?
I just had another email from SkyFX. They again encouraged me to wait till at least this Wed before deciding to convert to them - if at that time starconnect announces they can't be re-enabled with sat/modem setup as-is (the "when" is probably end of Sept per satnow.com).
Also SkyFX reiterated they are ready to take starconnect F11/AMC6 customers for $109 (for re-programmed F11 and new LNB) and a dish re-allignment ($249 if have an older PC card) and shift them to AMC15 and their service.
I think I'll wait till Wed cause I would rather not have to re-allign my dish.
Doesn't look like you have to send out your equipment. My neighbor got an email from Skyfx that states she can keep her F11 right where it is and it can be re-programmed on dial-up to accept the AMC15 signal. She needs a universal LNB for a couple of bucks and we re-point her dish. Looks like these guys have been hustling. This technology amazes me. She has been using my signal over a cisco router for two weeks now and she is in her kitchen next door400 feet away.
I think it was wise to wait. You should be OK now. Good Luck.
