I only point this out, because I've never done so before. In fact, I've always assumed that people like cable/satellite installers, carpet installers, and furniture delivery guys are just doing their jobs and getting paid for it, so I never really considered tipping them. But I was so impressed with the job the DirecTV installer did at my new house the other day, that I gave the guy a tip when he finished. I wish I could remember the name of the company he worked for, but I believe he said they've only been doing the installs in Green Bay for a month or so after the previous company went out of business. As for the install: I was scheduled for an 8-12 time slot, and he called just before 8AM to ask if it would be OK to push my time back until right around noon. He had looked at the work order and got nervous when he saw it was to install a new dish and 4 DVRs, so he was worried about how long it might take. I told him that was fine and I appreciated the call. Since my house is a 2-story with a finished basement and was pre-wired for cable with only one RG6 going to each room, I thought it was going to be ugly and I was going to need to purchase an SWM8 (which the installer had never heard of). Instead, he was able to get two cables run to all but one location (which was an interior wall on the second story). He also located the dish in a spot that required a bit more cable run (through a very hot garage attic) just to hide the dish from sight from the street a little more. And he ended up using two 6x8 multiswitches to minimize the number of cables run from the attic to the basement and to give me some room for future expansion. As a bonus, this is also going to make it much easier for me to add OTA and possibly still an SWM8 in the future. He was at my house for about 5 1/2 hours total. Overall, I don't think I could have asked for a better installation.
