    Going to go to DirecTV in the new house, so I need to run additional cables for DVR boxes, does anyone have any good ideas of where I could get a spool of 300-400 ft of RG6? Local, online, I don't have any preference, just decent quality, as cheap as possible.

    pimfg.com is what I use and am very pleased with their products and service.


    However, DirecTV has wired two homes for me, as well as my office free-of-charge (on seperate occassions). New RG6 (as neccessary) is included with their install. They say it's limited to 200ft, but they've done more for me.

    Extra lines are supposed to be included in the install, but if the installer thinks they are too difficult they can charge hourly for anything over an hour.

    In all honesty I'd do it myself if I were you. I've seen (and had to fix) what a few of the installers have done in some houses :mamoru: I work for a company that contracts out installs from DTV as well as sells the service/install.

    I'd ask for a new tech, personally. The techs I've gotten have so-far been excellent from DirecTV. The Dish Network tech, however, was a fucktard.

    The dish network guy that installed my parents dish was fucking retarded...he bolted the dish up on the flashing by two bolts, every time it got a little windy the damn thing would loose signal. He also broke one of the plastic panels that covered the roof overhang where he cut the hole for the cable.

    I got them all setup with DTV though and now it's not going anywhere. I'm a little over zealous with making it all look neat and tidy though :o

    haven't decided yet, waiting on the work to get done first, then will take a closer look at the boxes. I kind of want to wait a bit, because I've seen in the past where they offer Sunday ticket to anyone getting new service.

    Well are you getting the HD DVR or the regular DVR? The HR21 is the HD DVR.

    Oh and Sunday ticket is :bowdown:
