I set up the receiver with my TV and turned it on. The screen showed a message which said, "Searching for satellite signal." I figured that was normal at the beginning. I left it on for awhile and came back to find that the receiver was still searching for the satellite signal.
After 4 hours of searching for a signal I decided to call for support. Of course, I had to leave a message.
The next morning I am called back and asked to explain the situation. I told them that the satellite signal has not yet been found. They ask me if the receiver is plugged in correctly. (I wanted to say "How in the world do you think I can see the message on my TV if it isn't plugged in correctly" but I was nice.) They agreed to send a technician to my apartment to check out the situation.
When the technician arrived he quickly diagnosed the situation. Are you ready for this? My building is not available for their satellite service. The one beside me is, but not the one I live in.
Perhaps God is teaching me that I need to read and focus on Him rather than using my time to watch TV. Plus, it's a lot cheaper!!
Life goes on without TV.
