Yesterday, the installer came to install the DIRECTV HD DVR. Since we already had a DIRECTV installation, all that was involved was installing the triple sat dish, installing a new multiswtich and one additional line to the living room.
The installer was supposed to come between 1 and 5, but he showed up around 6. The dish went up easily. I thought that he would have to run an additional 2 lines to where we had our old multiswitch, but he was able to put the new multiswitch in the atack, while still allowing me to later add a multiswich in the current room to add drops to other rooms later.
I have been pretty impressed with the quality of the high defitintion content. Unfortunately, I am not impressed with the content provided by DIRECTV's HD package. I wish that they would include more channels.
