    How much would you pay?

    As a Sunday ticket subscriber for 6 years I have put up with alot of crap with Directv and Sunday Ticket. It gets better with each passing year but still isn't heaven in a box. My most rescent issue would be with Blackouts and market shares. That's not why I really started this thread though...

    Question. Settle an argument.

    Saying that you cant use RG-59 for satellite viewing is like saying you cant hook up your speakers with lamp cord. If it carries an electric currant it will display a picture. Use a cut up extension cord if you want. My suggestion would be to go with the RG-6 if you are running new wire. If...

    Question about Tivo

    You wont be able to split the Directv signal coming in. However you only need 2 cables still. You can use a diplexer to split your Directv signal and OTA. Basically you send your D* signal and OTA signal down the same line. Then when you power off your Tivo you will have a picture from your OTA...
