My Dish contract is up in July, and I am going to switch over to D*. Tired of Dish lack of commitment to sports. I also like the sounds of the HR34 setup compared to the Kangaroo. A couple of questions on my setup though. Right now I have 5 T.V's. One is in an office that isn't used much, and another in a bedroom of a college student who isn't home very often. With E*, I have a 722 running 3 t.v's. the back feed is split where all of my connections are made outside of the house to run a second and third T.V. off of it. Now it is my understanding that D* doesn't do this? I also have two other HD receivers for the other T.V's With D* I plan on getting 1 HR34, and 2 HD receivers. The HR34 will be on my main T.V. with the other two being in bedrooms. I understand that I can Mirror the 2 HD boxes to get programming on the 4th and 5th t.v when I want it. Does D* have a remote like E*, that can control the reciever from a different room? I realize that both T.V's would have to be watching the same thing, but that isn't a problem for me. Also, do they make long HDMI cables, or the other ones that are used for HD? (red,blue, green, yellow and white) I would need the cables to be about 30 feet. Running regular coax wouldn't be the end of the world, but would love to get HD to the other T.V.'s.
