I normally wouldn't post this, but I'm a bit flustered with an install earlier today and wanted to see if this is common practice. I did a third room install today and the tech wanted $100 for a multiswitch and wanted to charge me for cable. I got directv on the phone who told him to not charge me for the multiswitch install and he then tells them "ok, well I don't have one so I can't put it in." So since he can't get the money he changes his story to not having one. He would also not provide me any cable to run to the third room. He says they no longer provide cable, not even if I ran the cable myself. But he would gladly provide cable for a fee, and an additional fee to run it himself. Is this standard practice? Am I being unreasonable for asking for cable at no charge?
