I'm getting Direct TV this Saturday. We tried getting Dish but we have some trees in the backyard that were in the way of the satellite. The installer told me to try Direct TV. He said their satellite was higher. We're getting 3 receivers. I have a few questions if someone could please help me: Do they use the existing cables from cable tv ? I have to keep basic cable for another tv plus my cable modem for my computer. My concern is if they use the cable for Direct TV and I have a splitter going to 2 tvs, one getting direct and one not. Is that a problem ? I also have the same situation in my basement. I have a cable wire getting split, one goes to the cable modem and one goes to a tv. I'm putting direct tv on the tv but I need basic cable for the modem. 2 of my tv's just have a vcr so the setup should be easy but I'm concerned about my home theater setup. I have my dvd player, reciever and vcr with cable tv. Is it complicated to hook up Direct Tv to a home theater system ? Thanks.
