We've just finished a room and are hooking up a new HDTV with our existing DirecTV service. We moved the existing hookup, before the walls went up, to a new location in the room. The DirecTV installation guy came out yesterday and told me they can't hook it up because we wired with standard coax cable (instead of the heavier duty stuff). But, our friend that hooked it up works in the industry (sells and installs AV/electronic equipment to business), said it's not necessary--coax works just fine. Any thoughts on this? Anyone had to battle with DirecTV or other satellite network for the same reason and had luck doing so? Wondering if we'll have to try to fish new cable through the walls or worse.
