I'm having Dish installed tomorrow (Hopper/Joey combo). I presently have cable tv and have been running a cable from a splitter into the bedroom. Will the installer be installing the Joey from a new cable in the wall or running a splitter from the Hopper? I don't want to encourage them to do that, so I'm thinking to remove all the cables before he gets here.

Wiring looks like this: http://www.satellite...01&d=1328637421

One cable goes from central location to each "box".

he'll figure it out when he gets there.

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

Thanks, I had Directv for many years and assumed it would be similar.
