You will not need a WB68 multi-switch. The dish has 4 outputs on it.

I assume you are getting HD (HD receiver or HD DVR) install? If so you will get an Slimline dish with one or two (if you get an HD DVR) cables from the dish to the receiver.

i installed my cables from outside through the house i have 4 runs from outside,when i had dish they only used one cable from the lnbf with a spliter to the back of the receiver, i believe that is the way it was.....regards

I don't know for sure but if I had to guess I would say 2-3 days. That is normally how long it takes to receive things from DIRECTV.

As a former DISH customer myself, I chose to switch to D* mainly because i feel that the programming that D* offers is out of this world... There are so many choices, there is truly something on for everyone! My very few dealing with customer service (:nono2: excluding installation:eek2: ) where great. Each time the rep went above and beyond to serve the customers needs.

I honestly, truly think that if D* could work out there problems with the installs that they would be without doubt be the perfect tv provider:hurah:

My Setup

Slimline 3-LNB Dish
WB68 Muti-Switch
Living Room: R16-300
Master Bedroom: D12-500
