    Sorry for this dumb question... but... I was wondering if it is possible to use both tuners in a SD Hughes Directv DVR when only 1 line is coming from the multiswitch? Can I add another multiswitch at the DVR and use the 2 lines coming from it to utilize the 2 tuners?
    I only have 1 line coming from a multiswitch to that DVR and it is a long run under the house. I have a bad back and really can't crawl under the house anymore. I was hoping for some other way to make it possible to get the full usage out of the DVR.
    thanks....

    Sorry, the only way to get that second tuner working is to get a second line run from the dish/switch.

    Also, you can not run the one line into a switch to get two outputs.

    I was afraid of that, but was hoping anyway. Maybe I can hire someone to do the dirty work.
    thanks
