What about the splitter that came with it. It combines the satellite line in cable and then splits it to both the sat 1 and sat 2 inputs.


As I told you, each TUNER must have own line to LNBF to control it independently (directly or thru a switch), you can't split legacy signals for two tuners.

True, but if you've got enough hardware to get 1 run down the receiver, the receiver "should" function on only 1 tuner.

I am going to start with one and go from there.

I will keep you posted, unfortunately I will not be getting it done until next week, too busy now.

I do appreciate all the input.

You can get a picture with only one tuner...but it will be finicky at best, and a PITA at worse. Few things are more frustrating than trying to get the receiver to look at tuner 1 instead of tuner 2, when it is bound an determined to try and use 2.
