First off, let me say that I am completely new to satellite but am thinking of switching to direct TV since I am tired of the constant bill increases from Comcast. My house, which is located in southern NH, is 3 years old and was wired for cable, single coax to each room. I would like to add 2 HD DVRs and a SD receiver that I can move to certain rooms depending on the scenario. The HD DVRs will be located on opposite ends of the house, one in the family room and the other in a second floor bedroom. I feel that a SWM would be the best option because I do not want to run a second coax to the HD DVRs nor do I want a wire put through the outside wall into the rooms. Is it possible to request a SWM on a new install or does the situation dictate? Also, am I better off installing a slimline dish with a SWM in the basement or a SWM lnb dish (heard that there are issues with the swm lnb and cold weather. Is this the case?). Is it possible to determine what equipment I would be receiving before I sign up for an install? Any other thoughts on how I should plan out the install?
