DirecTV Dual
This photo was taken after I'd already done some "cleaning up". The old Primestar box was hanging and laying on the ground. I drilled some holes and mounted the box onto the utility mast. The customer's illegal cable running from the neighbors was plugged into a splitter and the two ex-Primestar wires going into the house. The customer wanted to keep cable, so rather then run two new lines to the same locations, I decided to use diplexers.
Better view of the mess. Customer stated that the phone jack in the living room was dead. I discovered that one of the phone wires in this mess was not connected to the telco box. I hooked it up and now it works.
Customer had an existing DTV dish on an old Primestar pole on roof.

All cleaned up!
All cleaned up!
Cleaned up hanging wires on overhang, as well.
Back to Installs When I called to activate this customer, it turned out they were already a (ex)customer with a balance due of $194.50. DTV would not activate until they paid the balance. This job was sold by Direct something Satellite Network or something like that. Dealer #1709649 The dealer obviously didn't do a good job of qualifying this customer.
