Well, I'm going to use DirecTV's installers; but, I am running all wires, providing ground point and mounting pad.

Question 1: I have four runs of RG6 routed from my basement to the eaves. How should I go through the eave? Simply drill a hole, thread wires and caulk? Or should I use some sort of connector like you see on your load center (fuse box)?

Question 2: The four runs mentioned above are not solid copper. Length of runs is 40'. I need to buy more RG6 for other purposes. I am going to get solid copper. Should I take the time to replace:mad: the primary runs? (If it matters, I going to get HD & DVR)

Question 3: The mounting pad will be a piece of pressure treated wood screwed into 2x6 studs. The dish will be an AT9. How big of a mounting pad does the AT9 require?

Thanks for any help.

Do you have soffit vents?
The four runs mentioned above are not solid copper. Length of runs is 40'.
The length of the runs is the total distance, not just to the switch. If you have a receiver relatively close to the switch and dish, you should be okay.
The dish will be an AT9.
Not that it makes any difference, but are you sure it won't be an AU9?
