Zinwell 6x8 Multi-Switch
Posted 05 November 2009 - 10:50 AM
When I had DTV install my Slimline5 they ran 3 coaxial cables from the dish to the house. They connected 2 of these to my HD-DVR receiver and 1 to my regular HD receiver. DVR is in the living room and regular HD receiver in the bedroom. All worked well.
I just bought a 3rd receiver. It is a regular HD receiver. I bought a Zinwell 6x8Multi-switch so I could hook this 3rd receiver up to the dish. Now, I do not get all of my channels.
Do I need to run a 4th coaxial cable from the Dish to the Multi-Switch to get the rest of my channels?
Thanks for any help you can offer.

bobnielsen - I had already purchased the Multi-switch and mounted it. But you are right, if I had known that there was a 4th connection on the dish, I would have done it your way. Thanks for the help though.
