    Directv is instructing me to hook the deca end labels for the STB to my coax on the tv. I thought you weren't supposed to hook that to the tv

    No, don't connect it to the TV, it needs to be connected to a power supply/inserter.

    No, you can't. You'll either need them to send you a Cinema Connection Kit - Coax or get one through a third party like Solid Signal. Ordering from Solid Signal might be your best bet.

    Well call#6 was unaware of this setup also. He tried to tell me to conect coax to the tv. Once I told him no he actually put me on hold and went to look at a setup they had in the building. When he got back to the phone he apologized and told me I was right. So we will see in a few days if I get the right one.

    If any directv people happen to read this there is a lot more training need for Crs reps on this setup

    "we" send a request to DirecTV about the lack of training on this subject and it looks like they never got the message.
