    I have my movers connection scheduled. The csr gave me an hd box. On the orders on directv's website it shows the csr actually ordered an hddvr. i was also told i am getting the whole home dvr (which i am guessing is what is listed as MRV Install) and cinema connection kit (not listed).

    1.if that is correct and i now have 4 hddvrs which is 8 total tuners. i will also have a coaxial line going to my office to connect the cinema connection to my router if i cant get a wired internet jack behind my basement tv.
    i am wondering how many lines will i have coming from the dish to the swarm of cables in the cable box outside the house (i currently have one line off the dish since i got an updgrade to swm at my house) or does it require 4 lines from the dish?

    2. do all mrv installs just require one cable outlet at the tv (when i first had directv you needed two lines ran to each a dvr)

    3. they messed up the spelling of my new street. can i change that online or do i have to call in again and wait on hold. (install is aug 11)

    4. finally most importantly for my wife and kids when we take the dvrs to the new house for the install do we lose what is recorded on them when they are setup at the new location?

    1. 8 tuners = one line from dish, CCK = 0.

    2. Yes. Unless you do OTA.

    3. Call, ask for billing.

    4. No.

    Also, the technician might install a wireless cinema connection kit. If so, that will eliminate having to pull an unnecessary cable to your office.

    Thank you. That is much nice only having to have one outlet at each tv.

    Keep in mind though, if you add another box later (or want to swap one out for an HR34), you'll need changes on your dish. The way they'll do it, there's an 8 tuner limit.

    does that then provide internet for pandora and on demand for all boxes on the network or just the one box that it is directly connected to?

    what if i decide to put a tv in the guest room/office? run a single cable line to it and then use a splitter from the wall plate and send line one to the hddvr deca and line two to the broadband deca and connect that to my router (or does this option also require two separate cable runs)?
