Unless they send an idiot to your house like they did mine
Well, my first install was a couple of years ago. He seemed to know what he was doing, although he tacked the cable to our roof, which kinda scared me. The second install we had was for our tivo, and that guy ran coax in the house, hooked up the second tuner, added a multiswitch, the whole deal. He rocked. This last guy was a little odd, but a nice fella. He seemed to do everything okay and it all seems to work, plus he did it at night in freezing rain.

lol
a buddy of mine helped me run the cables, hes like a 5'5" mexican. He fit up in the rafters just fine:p
After that we started calling him our "Attic Monkey". That still pisses him off:lol:
I felt like I was on an episode of fear factor or something. All the cabling was ran either through the joists on the main floor or through the joists in the basement. We almost ran a set through the attic, but decided against it at the time because it looked hard.
