    I'm ready to pull the trigger and get a Hopper and Joey to replace my 722 and 622. But I have older coaxial RG6 that isn't swept to 3Gz. After reading more and talking to an installer, that 3Gz cable only needs to be between the node and the Hopper. So my question, is this possible?

    I have 3 RG6 runs to my 722, 2 from my 34 switch and 1 from my antenna. They all come my utility room. So can I put the solo node behind the Hopper and take the 2 satellite lines in from my new Dish 1000.2 in to the node and use the third RG6 as an "out" that will go to my Joey?

    Thanks for you help!

    Yes, that should work. What is your cable swept to? 2.25 GHz? It may have it printed on the side of it.

    "swept" in not the final point of discarding the existing cable: old reels of RG-6 cable just not swept to 3 GHZ, but works with h2k's nodes just fine
