I live in a slab home with not much attic space, so I was wondering how this will go. I really don't want some drill-happy installer. What kind of charges are involved with the install?? Can they hook up to the existing cable splitter on the outside of the house???Thanks

DTV = Digital Television
D* = DirecTV
E* = Dish Network (Echostar)
You don't have a lot of choice. If you don't want them to drill holes in the siding, you'll need to negotiate for an alternative at your expense or run the cable yourself.

None other than the special routing of the cable or some special mounting devices if the situation demands.
What kind of charges are involved with the install??
No. If the existing cable is of the necessary spec, they can run two cables to where the splitter is and install a grounding block there. Depending on the receiver(s) chosen, it may take up to three wires per receiver to give you the capabilities that you want. Cable and Dish Network can get it done with a single RG6 wire.
