Switching from Comcast to DirecTV, wiring questions
Finally I am going for the dish! I have an install scheduled for 8/13.
We currently have Comcast\Xfinity cable and Xfinity Internet. I have a few questions:
1) Can DirecTV use the existing CAT 6 Cable (I think) wired throughout my 18 year old house for carrying the signal?
The cable splitter is in the attic at one end of my 2 story house and the location of the dish will be on the opposite
side of the house most likely on a post in the ground. I have a CAT6 run from the splitter to right where the dish
connection would enter the house so could the dish connect into that cable (through some other hardware I am sure)
to then go to the splitter?
2) We want to keep our Comcast\Xfinity internet service. Any problems with it also being plugged into the splitter that
will still have the Comcast cable connection for internet connected as well as having DirecTV signalling? Can it play on the same
3) Any idea what DirecTV would charge for the pole mount, digging the hole, filling it with cement, etc?
Thanks for the help!
