I had Dish network up until about a year ago. I canceled it to try the HTPC route, and a couple of months ago, decided that there was too much content that I was missing out on. I decided to get Dish again, called them directly (not a reseller) and had an install scheduled for this morning (Saturday). I still have the dish mount (without LNBs), with cables running down to where I want the box installed. These are the same cables I was using a year ago, and for years before that. The installer is a third-party installer who told me that his company won't let him use my preexisting cable. This company seems to be the sole official dish contractor in my state. He suggested that I cancel the install, and reschedule it through his retailer, where he'd be able to use the existing cables and not have to rewire anything. The other option was to have him pull completely new cable. This would have involved drilling new holes in my house, routing it differently, and otherwise doing things that I don't really want done to my house. As per his suggestion, I canceled the install, but haven't called to schedule the second install. When I canceled, they asked me to confirm what he'd told them - that I didn't want to have new cables and holes in my house. His employer seemed to accept this as a legitimate reason to cancel. So, what's going on? Anyone had anything like this before? Am I about to get hosed?
