    We are in the process of building on the North side of Lake Travis. Just outside of Austin.

    We are wanting to find a reputable DirecTV installer to help us out.

    We know there will be 11 SAT boxes with at least 4 needing RF remote capabilities as well as being small enough to mount behind wall mounted TVs.
    Thinking of H25 or similar.

    We will also need to be able to setup at least 4 boxes with IP information to be controlled by a third party control system. (RTI or Crestron).

    I have been told that you can not guarantee what type of equipment you get from DirecTV, is that true? If so how do you properly design a A/V system that includes their products?

    Thanks for any leads.

    That is correct you will get whatever is on the truck... Only way you will be able to get exact models that you want is to go though a retailer like Solid Signal but, you will have to pay for each box as opposed to getting "up to 4 rooms free" deal that Directv offers.

    Suggest you look into a Local A/V Install /Design - They will help with a layout and can provide help with your setup -including Tv mounts and electric requirements in your locations.

    This has already been done. There is a pretty extensive design that has been done. Including wiring diagrams, rack elevations, etc.

    What we do not have is a DirecTV installer who we can work with to spec and install the SAT side of the project.
