I currently have TW cable for tv and internet. If DirectTV comes out do they just tap into the existing coax that runs thru my house? What about my internet, can the DirectTV and Cable internet run on the same coax that runs thru my house? Please set me straight =)

They can, it depends where your 18" dish will terminate. I had the same question years ago because my ISP/cable company had my home cabled and then I switched to DTV. The only thing DTV had to do was run extra length lines to where my cable terminated (just to extend to the rooms) and everything tested out ok. I need to run new lines from my FTA Sat to my tv now to another input so I can switch from international to local/dtv without having to change the inputs.
