Well finally after enough going around and around with
DirecTV they are coming out tomorrow to install the AT9 Dish.

From what I've culled from the forums here is that I should insist
on them using either the...

Zinwell WB616 Multiswitch or the Zinwell WB68 Multiswitch

Other than that anything else I should wary of?

Thanks Again - Will

Watch the installer. Make sure he goes through the proper dish alignment procedure, including the fine tuning adjustments.

Have all 4 lines run from the dish into your house - wherever you choose as a central location. Wire from there out to your tv locations. That should happen automatically if they install the multiswitch.

And the comment about making sure it is screwed into a roof joist also applies if it is a wall mount - make sure it is screwed into a joist or strut or whatever, not just siding.

I can't over emphasize the importance of Carl's suggestions regarding dish alignment. It seems that quite a few installers are not following through with the proper alignment procedures and are either guessing or short-cutting the process.
