I have a question and I cannot find an exact answer in the forums. I am having and HR20 installed (actually, I am on the wait list, they are sending out an H20 in the interim). I am a new install, no previous dish mast or coax. This order comes with the 5LNB. I am also having the international dish installed for cricket. Furthermore, I am having them chuck up their $50 antenna for OTA (I believe a batwing which should be great for me as the antennas are 9 miles from my place). Please see below the questions for the info from my order confirm email. My questions are this (I only need 1 TV installed):
1) How many coax lines will they be running (2 for 5LNB, 1 for international, 1 for OTa = 4 total?)
2) Will the installer know the HR20 is on the way, or should I make sure he installs the coax now for the HR20 (I believe a 2nd coax is needed for the dual tuner). I dont want to have to wait at home for a 2nd install.
3) I live in a townhome and the HOA might not like the 2 dishes + antenna, but hey, they can screw themselves, although, that being said, I need a clean install. Do these installers do a good job, what tips do you have for me to get these guys to do a clean install with most wires hidden and run in the crawl space (especially if I have multiple coax lines running).
4) Being 9 miles from the antennas, do I even ned the antenna on the roof? I have time to cancel that.
Thanks in advance.
PS if you are wondering about the Hype TV below, they would not install the international dish unless I ordered international programming, so I ordered hype for $10 and will cancel in one month. This way when cricket ticket 2007 comes about I dont have to have another install. Well worth the $10 in IMHO.
