    I have two rooms running off of a Dish 625, the other two rooms run from a Dish 322. I want to add a new 322 I just bought to a fifth tv in another room. Just to run one TV. From my satellite there are two cables, so I tried to split that with a standard splitter and ran one single cable to my new 322. Does not work, I am completely confused by satellite installations. I am a handyman of sorts and do not want to pay an installer, I want to know how to do it myself. Can anyone help?:confused:

    You should first check to see if your dish setup has a third output from the lnb (the eye on the dish facing the reflector) and run the new coax from there, if there isn't one, you then need a switch (preferably a DPP44 switch. The current outputs from the lnb would need to be run to the switch and the coax runs (including the new line) would then need to be run from the switch instead of the lnb.

    The LNB only has two outputs. I will have to buy the DPP44 switch. Where is the best place to find this switch? One other question...on one of the lines going from the LNB it has a DPD2 filter (dcpass) that has a 3 way labeled in/out, sat, uhf/vhf. one of the cables from the LNB go to the sat side then the other two go under the house, along with the other cable coming from the LNB. I am just wondering what does that 3 way do? I am just trying to understand the system set up. Thank you very much for the other information about the DPP44, that really helps. Thank you..

    Agree the only other alternative I see is a 1000.2 dish to replace your dish 500. But that means you need to become an installer instead of a handyman.

    I found a couple of DPP44's, do I need a power inserter with it? what does it do for me?

    A DPP44 with power inserter will take up to four inputs and give you four DishPro Plus outputs. Your other option is two DP34s and double cabling to everything.

    Self installing is overrated.

    Thank you for the information...I would call an installer for a large job, I just figured adding one more receiver to my existing system wouldn't be that hard, I may be wrong. I just really really enjoy trying to do it myself, I like to learn along the way, if I could do this sort of stuff everyday I would enjoy it. Thanks again..
