    I am buying a 3 bedroom house shortly and will be wanting to upgrade my service. I currently have a lone 522 which is in my living room and the ch 60 output goes to my master bedroom.

    In my new house I would like to put my 522 in the master bedroom, a new 625 in the living room, a new receiver in the guest bedroom and a new receiver in my home office.

    Does this configuration qualify for the 4 TV rule?

    I just tried a basic setup on Dish Builder and it let me go up to 4 TV's...

    I wonder why they wouldn't go up to 6 like D*, kind of a bummer

    4 leased tuners is the rule, not 4 rcvrs. Your 522 dual-tuner rcvr counts as two tuners. The new 625 dual-tuner will count as the remaining two leased tuners, or the two single-tuners for the guest BR/office. You will have to purchase the additional 'tuners'. If you will only use the guest BR and office sparingly, split the TV2 signals from your current 522 and/or a new 625 to those rooms to avoid having to purchase the additional equipment. Those rooms will obviously be viewing the same program as the TV2 that they are split off from. The TV2 remotes could be used from those additional rooms. :icon_cool

    has rules like that? At one time I had eight DirecTiVos (16 tuners) and never had a question...

    Aah, tuners...makes sense. Hmm, so I'd have to settle (without additional expense) for two DVRs and call it a day. :( This is one of these situations where cable TV would come in handy because it could be installed in every room.

    Well, as long as cable was only analog and didn't require a digital cable box. Then you're right back to the E* situation...

    EXACTLY, and if you're in an area like mine, the analog signal is not good....I wouldn't even consider going to cable as long as I'd have significant analog channels.
