Got this last weekend and the installer was awesome. He set up my dish on a non-ground penetrating stand in my backyard, held down by 4 cinder blocks. He then did a helluva great job running 4 new cables (following the existing cables under the overhang of the house) to the TV's and instead of doing a wall-fish, since the TV's are near the outer walls, just drilled holes near the existing cable came thru.
He did a GREAT job and also told me that the protection plan ($5.99 a month) is not worth it. If my DirectTivo (DVR40) that I'm using for my bedroom TV ever dies, or if I decide that I prefer the DirectTV interface vs Tivo, call and get the protection plan for one month, then give him a call (he left his cell #) and he'll come out and call DTV and let them know that my Tivo died and he'll replace it with a R15 (Direct TV DVR) free. He also told me about getting an OTA antenna and if I want, get all the parts and he'll come install it for free. Good stuff!
Overall, a great experience and I tipped him $50 for doing such a great job.
Not to mention that I got the Premier Package w/ HD's & DVR service for $46 the first 3 months, $65 thru month 10, then either $102/month from there out, or drop the package down to whatever I want.
Thanks for all the help and I'm a happy guy.
Oh, I should also add that we have had two BRUTAL hail storms this week and I lost DTV for about 1 min, once. All-in-all, rock solid and I'm thrilled
