You should but not for the reason your thinking LOL.. Your misreading that person's post.. You shortened "Dish network" to just "Dish" at a point in your post, and DirectTV technically runs of a satellite dish.. Hence why he said "DirectV is Dish".

I visited some family over the holidays and all I know is Brighthouse HD sucks even on the best TV.  Directv rocks and the only thing I would give it up for is FIOS.

QFT, that's why I ditched it a few years ago for the dish.

My wife just corrected me. We did have a technician come out and adjust the antennae. It didn't correct the problem. I had forgotten that. FIOS is not an option yet where I live. The NFL package is the only thing keeping us connected to DirecTv. If it ever becomes available any other way, we're done with them.

Had Dish now for over 3 years with NO serious problems EXCEPT during periods of INTENSE rains.  Otherwise A-OK.

Only had one problem with DTV and that was the bracket for the satellite broke and the receiver could no longer pick up the HD channels, however they came and fixed it and haven't had a problem since, rarely if ever do we actually lose connection since they fixed the bracket.

I do love Fios more though, when I lived in Florida I had it and the picture was the absolute best bar none. However the ticket is more important than picture to me.

1sparkybuc, are there any other obstructions in front of the dish?  One other thing to consider is where it may be pointed at and where DirecTV's satellite is at position wise in the sky.  There could be a possibility of it being lined up closely with where the sun is at in the sky with it, and in that case does bring on sunspots and interference that will cause pixelation like what you are seeing. 

Sun spots in South Dakota? How does the sun get thru the falling snow?
