My daughter is getting Directv installed in her house. She has one tv in the den, one in a bedroom and one in the guest bedroom.

Right now she wants the $29.95 house special, but might upgrade later.

My question is, with all of the new products with different acronyms, what equipment will the installer install? The house does not have any existing cable.


Thanks

The installer will install whatever is on the order.

What receivers has she ordered? SD and/or HD?

Regular receivers? DVRs?
DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.

She has HD in all the rooms. The den will have a DVR.

They will most likely install a SWM system with an SL3 LNB.

Is Whole House being installed?

No. Will she get the Genie, or is it only for 4 room setups?

She won't get a Genie unless she specifically ordered one.
