I bought an 8th tv for the house and already had a receiver I could use which I had earlier deactivated when I replaced it with an H20. I figured I had one out line available on my multiswitch since I only had 7 tv's. However I forgot that I had 2 lines going to a DVR unit. So I was disappointed to figure out that my multiswitch was already maxed-out. I could have saved myself a lot of time and effort had I started on this forum, but instead I tried a splitter in one of the lines. I activated the old receiver, and everything worked fine for awhile. Then I started losing channels, etc., and eventually figured out that splitting the signal doesn't work. I took out the splitter and hooked it all up the way it was before. In summary, I have the line in place to an activated receiver, but I don't have the line connected on the satelite end. I would hate to have to call a tech/ installer to come out just for this problem. Is there a simple way to get this line active? I am not real technical guy, so if the answer is something like "cascading of multiswitches," I am toast, and I'll just have to bite the bullet and call a tech. Thanks!
