    Apologies, I believe this has been discussed but is there a diagram or good post concerning the specifics of installing a 3 Hopper system? I did a search but struck out.

    You would need 2 switches - either 2 DPP44's or a DPP44 and a DPP33. Two to four lines (one for each orbital location) from the dish to the switches - second switch trunked of the first. A dedicated line for the power inserter going to port 1 on each DPP44 switch. A Duo node attached to ports 2-4 on the first DPP44 switch. A Solo Node feeding off of the second switch.

    Note that the Hopper network running on the Solo Node will never communicate with the other two Hoppers.

    Just connect a jumper from a client port on the first node to a client pot on the second node and ALL Hoppers will communicate each other.

    Really? I hadn't heard that before. Very cool if it works.

    This was shared by 3HaloODST at Satellite Guys which is really helpful, perhaps others can use the information. :)
