Your DPP44 can supply signal to 4 receivers with no problem.
I have no idea what the Dish guy was talking about either, each receiver is independent and able to tune any channel you are subscribe to. AFAIK you can tune all 4 sat tuners to the same channel.
He may have been alluding to the fact that the second output from each receiver is always SD, who knows.
Dish 1000.2 @ 110, 119, 129; dish 500 @ 61.5
Antennas - CM4228; RS U75-R; coathanger; Funke PSP.1922 (stillin the box); paperclip
Displays: Sony VPH D50Q with HD Fury HDMI input; Hitachi 57F59; Sony Bravia LCD;Sanyo 32" LCD; Panasonic 42" plasma
Sony 80GB PS3; Toshiba HD-DVD
Give me a Finco colinear array and I'll rule the world - HA-HA-HA-HA!

I have a new 722 and two 622 all being feed straight from the dish it looks like in the attic. Each coax runs to one of the receivers.
If I want to add a receiver can I add a diplexer to one of the three coax? I'm use to a swm or switch inside the attic.
Can I add a separator to get the Home Distribution output from the 722 back into the coax and pull it back out with another on at the 622. I see mention of a dp separator but not sure what I need.
Thanks. everything is working and don't want to screw it up now. I can run a new coax from the 722 to the 622 but many walls exist and maybe the way.
I will say the installer did a great job as I had three tivos and one HD dvr(broken) and helped me get my sound system running. ONE big pile of extra cables and open slots in tv stand maybe for a PS3?
If there is a place to look and read please point me to better understand this new system. Old directv system was 5 years old.
