Directv dosen't have a work order for a site survey.
ok, I have a pretty unobstructed south roof that should work about anywhere along it.
Your only option would be to schedule the movers connect. A Tech would get the workorder around 3 or 4 am, add up how much he was going to make that day and maybe get excited. If he needed equipment to complete any of the work he would head out to the wharehouse, otherwise he might go back to bed. When he got to your house, likely in the middle of nowhere and found out you just wanted a site survey he might be irratated. I know I would. A movers connect would pay somewhere around $50 depending on a number of variables. We only get paid if we complete the job that day. If you had that in your hand when I got there we could talk.
I think you read a bit too much into my question. I wouldn't do that to the installers. I'm a builder, and I don't like people doing that to me. I want them to want to do good work, not piss them off before they get started.
The NEC requires the dish and coax to be grounded before it enters the house. Most states and local governments follow the NECs recommendations. The most logical location is where the other utilites enter the house at the meter base. Run the cables from your structured wiring closet there. Let the tech worry about getting the cables from the dish to the meterbase.
We could talk about that also, you could be prepared.
Yes, that's what I mean, I want to get prepared and have cables where I want them so installer can mount dish where I want it to go, if it works there. (kinda got a bit frustrated with one prior installer when he put the dish on the front side of my roof - the north side facing the street. I'd like to locate it in the back out of sight from the street, if at all possible.)
