    True, but if you can avoid having water drawn onto the splitter, why not? Right?

    The splitter is weather sealed. The problem is the connections which when properly done there should be no problem. The biggest problem the TS has is the "toboggan" leading water to his cable connection. the DirecTV splitter is the least of his worries now.

    I called DTV today to "register a complaint" with Mastec. They took my info and will have a Supervisor with DTV call me within the next 7 days. I'm not one to fuss usually, but this whole thing was just silly.

    When I had the bad upgrade in 2009 I wrote to Mastec and sent them the pictures of what a terrible job the first person did. I also told them how good the next guy from them was and what a good job he did.
    If you have paper work from them you should have a number that will reference it for them to find out who did this.

    They didn't leave paperwork. First guy was Mike and send guy was Ladarious. That's all I have to go on

    I have complained about MasTec so many times that I am sure DTV does absolutely nothing when they hear this. They must be incredibly cheap to justify their continued retention. I was so pleased a few years ago when I heard that DTV was taking all installations in house, but that obviously was a false rumor. SOME of the supervisors are quite competent, and I am sure that there are individuals who are excellent because the guys who come out the second time can usually fix what the first guy did, but the odds of getting one of those on the first visit is very slim.

    the tech's ID number is attached to all orders, so DirecTV/Mastec will always know who was there
