So my triple play with the local cable company is up and I'm not happy with the deal they offered me. Directv on the other threw everything including the sick at me and I schedule my installation for the first week of September (of course being a Packers fan in Central NJ definitely swayed me). I have a few questions regarding the install and expectations. 1. I keep reading about rain fade during inclement weather. Are we talking about a few minutes of an outage or an all day type thing. I just want to know what to expect should the weather get bad. 2. Do you need a phone line to order PPV? I looked at the ports on the back of the hr-34 and I saw no phone jack, so I can't imagine it would require one. I just wanted to make sure. 3. I'm keeping my cable internet and my modem is running off of a 2-way splitter at the main TV. Will the installer run a new line to the TV so that I can keep my modem and router in this locations? Are new runs necessary for the other 2 tvs and is that normally included? 4. Do they provide new customers with the newest dish available or is there a specific one I should request? 5. I'm a little concerned about some obstructions (trees) on the south side of my house. I'll have to take a picture and post that later. I've been with cable for my whole life so this process is fairly new to me. Any other advice you guys can offer is greatly appreciated as well.
