    If I move my TV to another room, will DirecTV come out and change all the wires and stuff, or will I have to pay for them to do this?

    you will have to pay, it is called a relocate, as in relocating to another room, and is about 69.00

    curt is correct, but if you already have cable running to that location that goes back to where the sat cables or switch is connected, you can swap the cable (or just connect the cable to that room to an open port on the switch) and move the receiver yourself.

    If you need cable run, have them do it.

    If you are contemplating adding another receiver in the future, now would be the time. If you order another tuner, they will install it including all the cables with no installation charge.

    Would I love to add another receiver, but I only have one TV. Trying to get the wife-factor to let me get another TV. (Can't blame it totally on her, we are expecting our first child so that has a little something to do with it.) :grin: For now though I think I will have to just do the Relocation.

    Even with the insurance there's a charge right?

    The Protection Plan covers your EXISTING infrastructure. It does not pay for new infrastructure.
