Yeah, this is true. Thing that probably didn't help me was the fact that I'm in an apartment complex, and we were not allowed to put the dish on the roof. So the installer literally had to attach it to a pole that he had to go to Home Depot for, and then literally had to "jimmy rig" it to the railing on my balcony. And my buddy who works for Direct TV, came over after the fact, inspected it, re-enforced it with a bunch of clamps and screws and spliced it into my bedroom. A few people I know have Direct TV, including my brother, and they have no issues. So maybe I'm still a little bitter.
