Direct TV install with only one tv
So in order to get internet in my new home (still haven’t sold the other one) i am having at&t uverse come out and install everything tomorrow. it says i need a tv in each room i’m planning on having a receiver. this isn’t gonna be feasible since all my tvs are still at the old house. i plan to take one tv to allow for install but am i screwed for the rest of the rooms where i plan to have it. all boxes are supposed to be wireless.

You can do it your self. I did. Not that hard.

In the settings menu on your main box there’s a menu to add a satelite box with a code. Punch the code on your wireless box and follow the instructions.

You better get every receiver you need at the install. If you call to add receivers later they will charge you for each one.

I would move the one tv to each location you want a receiver and have the installer go ahead and set up and activate all the receivers.

You'll be fine with the 1 tv then. You'll be able to just plug the other boxes into your other hdmi ports on your 1 tv and just turn them one and switch between inputs to make sure the boxes work.

If they weren't wireless then you would have had to move your tv around the house to make sure the cables were all connected.

well lucked out the guys weren’t allowed to set up the direct tv part (exposure to multiple rooms i guess) due to the corona and instead are just setting up internet.
