    Insataller came out and redid my set up. I removed the old 16' OTA antenna, and took down the old 3LNB dish. So I have a pole mount now. I have 2 solid copper dual lines from the dish to the back of the HR20-700. Do I need the multi-switch to hook up all four outputs on the slim line. Then leave the only 2 lines I need to the HR20 for the new HD channels?

    P.S. Thank you to all of these years reading your posts and helpful info I have read.......:confused:

    So you only have one HR-20 with two coax SAT feeds into it?
    The dish has two more outputs so you would only need an external multi-switch if you needed more than four feeds.

    Hi Medic,
    Since it appears you only have the one receiver, you do not need the multi-switch. The dish itself has a switch in it, allowing support for up to 4 tuners (like 2 HR-20s for instance). The 2 lines currently connected to your HR-20 are all you need, it appears, for your setup.

    Yep. Just a slimline with 2 cables and one HR20-700. I thought I read i needed the 4 outputs from the slim line to the two lines to the HR20. Thanks for all your help
