    Hello,

    I currently have the Ka/Ku AT9 dish along with one H20 and an R15. I am going to be adding another DVR next week.

    I currently do not have a Multi Switch for my setup... am I going to need one if I add another DVR? There a 3 lines coming from my roof to my basement already.

    Thanks,

    Victor

    With two 2 tuner DVRs and a 1 tuner receiver, you'll need five inputs to receivers. The dish has four available outputs. You'll need a Zinwell WB68 6x8 multiswitch. That will require four lines between the dish and multiswitch. The WB68 will have 8 (not 6, sorry about the typo) outputs, 5 of which you'll need for your planned setup.

    Doesn't the WB68 have 8 outputs?

    What do you guys think the WB 6 8 means anyway?

    ;)

    6 inputs, 4 from a Phase III or AT9, and 2 flex ports, used for 72.5, or 95 wing dishes...
    8 outputs.....
