I live in an 11 unit condo building that shares one dish on the roof. The signal is distributed through a couple multiswitches to the different units. Some units are run through SWMs because they needed the ability to run more than two receivers (each unit has only two RG6 runs coming in). Now that you have the background, each time a DirecTv tech comes to set someone up, they insist we are an MDU. We are not. We simply share a dish and everyone manages their own accounts, packages, etc. Some techs won't even touch our system because they THINK we are an MDU. Questions: 1. Can DTV force us to convert to an MDU? I assume that would require an upfront cost in equipments, installation, etc. 2. Is there any benefit to converting to an MDU even if our current system works fine? 3. Are there only certain techs who can work on MDUs? I've had a couple tech pack up and leave without doing anything once they saw our setup thinking we were an MDU. 4. Am I correct in stating that we shouldn't need a tech visit to set up a new unit if it is already wired? We should simply be able to connect the receiver and call DTV to activate, right?
