    I am getting confusing and conflicting advice from Dish. I am a novice, so please bear with me. I have a total of 5 receivers. An 811, a 921, and three standard receivers. I have a "500 Quad" switch and a SW-64 switch. I have two dishes (dish 500?). The 811, one standard receiver, and the 921(2 lines) are on one dish connected to the 500 Quad switch. The remaining two receivers are on a seperate dish connected to the SW-64 switch.

    My question: What is the easiest most cost effective way to add a second 921 to my system, and what equipment would I require to do it? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Time to ditch the Legacy gear and replace it all with DishPro.

    However, you've got two open ports on the SW64, so just use them.

    You don't mention having a wing dish (61.5 for V*) on the SW64, so use the last two inputs of the SW64 for that, and move the first 921 over there, too. The 811 wouldn't get V*, but oh well.

    If you want to keep your legacy LNB and switches then you need 8 connections for your 6 receivers. Try this link.
