    I am concerned about how they will run the wires in my home. Through the FAQ's, it appears that receivers only need one coaxial cable. I currently have cable. There is a single coaxial run outside. This goes to a junction box in a closet with a splitter. All of the coxial cables from my rooms run to this central location.

    How many wires have to go to the actual satelite dish?

    I plan on purchasing the Top 120 plan and add international programming. I believe that a second dish is requried for the international programming. Would this require additional coaxial runs?

    The wing dish can be connected to the input port on the main dish.

    Which system are you getting?

    The Hopper/Joey system only requires one coax from the Dish to the Hopper, then a coax to the node which connects to all your Joeys, so your current setup can work well there, if however youare getting a VIP (722or 211) setup one cable is required from the dish to each receiver.
