A friend of ours owns a row of town homes out in the country. One of his tenants has decided to move into the world of home ownership starting March 1st. Our friend has offered my family first shot at renting the place. Since i am currently living in city (and its getting pretty bad by the day) we are going to jump on it. The current people are Directv customers so all of the wiring is in place and i am about 95% sure its a SWM setup. I know its a slimline dish for sure but either way i plan to take my current dish with me for parts as my current landlady has requested that i kindly remove it and silicone the holes when i leave. With all that said, as you can see there really is no need for a tech to drive all the way out there as i most likely will just have to screw a coax cable in the wall at each receiver location or worse case swapping out an LNB and adding a splitter. I don't really care about having free programing for 3 months so, other than having a friendly tech come to your home and Directv giving you free programing is there really any other benefits to using the movers connection that i may be missing??
