That is all that is need for now- The installer will place a swm switch at (location) where the wire's for the LR meet. After he leaves You can run additional rg6 from that location to any other rooms for future use-as any additonal wiring changes would only take place at the (*new) Swm Switch.

But if you can set up a single continuous RG6 with no splitters, etc. in it from the HR34 location to the dish, that's all you'll need.
He'll replace your antenna with an AU9 with SWM ODU and put the power inserter by your HR34 (so make sure you have a 2nd plug).
Also, have internet at the HR34 if possible, or otherwise just have it somewhere else near the RG6 run. If you're using phone, it must be at the HR34.
HR34-700 through Sony STR-DA5300ES amp to LG 55" LE8500 LCD flat panel via HDMI. Discrete OTA.
On break. I thought I'd get something in time for baseball, but...
AU9 SWM dish. Channel Master 4228 for UHF + big yagi for VHF w/CM7777 combiner/amplifier.
Connected via wired GigE to Apple Time Capsule base station.

I can barely contain my excitement! I "cut the cord" 2 years ago and went with a media center 7 PC with OTA only. I decided that while this may be ok for some people, I really missed the dish. I have been wanting to go back to D*, as I was with E* before, but wasn't interested in playing receiver roulette with D*'s policies about refurbs etc. Now that the 34 is available and I can be sure of getting exactly that, I'm all in again.. Thanks again!
