I'm putting this in the general discussion forum b/c I want to switch to either D* or E*, but have general questions about switching to them from cable. This was my best guess. Sorry if I misplaced this! I have TWC and want to switch for more HD and the NFL network. But every time I call CSRs @ either D* or E* I get different answers to my questions (I know . . . shock) so I figured I would come to the experts. Any/all help is appreciated. Here goes: 1. If I want a DVR and want to record 2 shows @ once, do I need two separate lines running from the dish to the DVR? I ask this b/c I get a different answer every time I call. 2. Anyone that has a cable modem: do you have to have a dedicated run for the modem itself or can you diplex the sat/cab signal? I assume a separate line, but hope I am wrong! I really want to switch, but for me right now it just seems so complicated. I have RR & digital phone & want to keep both, but it appears I would have to run 2 more lines to the room where the modem is b/c that is also where my HDTV is and where I would want a HD DVR (which, of course, is also on the opposite side of the house from the cable box, and on a different floor!). Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance for any info and advice on how to make this work!
