I just upgraded to Dish HD. My dish has a 1000.2 LBN with 2 cables attached to port 2 and 3. Eastern ARC 61.5 and 72 I have two solo VIP 211 boxes becasue I wanted HD on both. But now i want to add at least one other receiver. I am trying to find the most economical way to add the third box Is there a way to split the one cable so two receivers can run on the one existing line? What is needed? (I understand I have to lease or buy another receiver if I do not want to mirror) Can I split the signal with a Switch? Which switch and can it be hook up under the house and does it need anything else to wrok. I think it is a DPP 44? If I have the two cables going inot that swtich can I run 4 receivers or two duo boxes? I am not on contract with Dish. They did the upgrade one time for free they said but if I wanted to add a 3rd only a 2 weeks later, they want me to commit to two years or said I can buy the equipment, I am not sure if I should just commit or if it is better to buy on ebay. I am just not sure I was going to commit for 2 more years. So I am trying to see what is involved. But then the equipment needed is included. I am confused if I still have to pay $7 a month how buying a box firt and then paying the equipment fee really makes sense just to stay off contract. I think I can run another cable from the 1000.2 but not sure, port 1 is available. But then what if I wanted to add a 4th box?
