A friend is having problems with DVB-T reception. He gets intermittent reception on his DVB-T card and thinks he has a decent aerial. So he would like a good installer come by and check it out for him.

Does anybody have any good experiences with installers in the Wellington area they could recommend.

Hi, I finally responded to my wifes nagging and got my self a real job in an design office again, (designing school networks for the MOE's SNUP program) so not doing installation work anymore.

That said, for clients that I have done major work for (ie full house installs etc) I will continue to provide support, but out of work hours.

As for Welly installers, give GZ user 'Brunzy" (aka alistar) a call, and yes Goodfellow is another good independant installer.

Lester was the installer who told me, incorrectly, that a 90cm dish has no signal strength advantage over a 65cm dish:

Cost was $450 for the new (carbon/plastic) dish + mount + his time. Not cheap.
