I’m new to the forum and want to say hello to everyone. I desperately want to dump COX as my cable provider. I am undecided whether to go Dish or Direct TV. From a programming standpoint I suspect they are nearly identical in line up and price. The selling point for either one will hinge on which makes for a better installation in my home. When my home was built, way too many cable outlets were installed. I have an average of two per room. That being said, I will likely not use much of the cable in the walls due to signal quality. I was forced to run two fresh cable lines from the COX box mounted on the outside of the house to my HD TV in the basement and the other to my internet modem. The remainder of the TV’s in the house have, at times, horrible picture quality. What does DISH and Direct TV use to route the signal to various rooms? Is one of them wireless? Do they use existing cable wire? I need a usable outlet in my living room, basement, garage and master bedroom. Do all of my TV’s need to be HD to receive either providers signal? I’m in the process of replacing the TV in the bedroom, so it will likely be HD before I make the move. I have no plans to replace the 20” unit in my garage and 50” projection in the living room. I wished there was an independent installer that could come out to my house to see what my needs are and advise as to which would work better for me. I guess this is why I’m asking the pro’s here for their opinions. What should I do? Thanks in advance.
