Hi, I am having a brand new DISH 1000 put in today along with VIP 622 and 625 receivers. I've read confilicting stories regarding if I need to use a DP444 switch or not. The installer contacted me and said that unless I am getting international stuff, I don't need the 44 switch. I told him that I do want to only run one RG-6 to the area of my receiver. He said he doesn't need the switch and he can do what I want to do with only one RG-6 from the DISH 1000 to the VIP622 and then use the separator to connect to the 2 inputs. Please respond quickly since the installer will be here in about 45 minutes. Thanks.
