Right now I'm only getting one Joey, so as I understand one cable run will go from the "SERVER" side of the node to the Hopper. Then another cable run will go from the "CLIENT" side of the node to the Joey. Since I know I'm going to be ordering another Joey within a couple of months and down the road may even buy a fourth TV which would require a third Joey, can I have the tech install a three way splitter inline on the client side so that I expand the system myself later on by simply ordering additional Joeys and connecting them without having to have a tech out to my house?
Finally, when I was on the phone with Dish I asked if I would need to have a hardwired ethernet connection available for the Hopper and they said that a hardwire connection isn't necessary as long as there is Wi-Fi available. The tech just ads a USB Wi-Fi dongle. I have a Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band router, so I'm sure it's up to the task, but is there any good reason to hardwire the connection instead? I'll only really be using it for software updates and diagnostics should I need them because we're not big movie watchers and probably will not be ordering any on demand movies. I definitely can get a hardwire connection to the Hopper location if need be, but if I can avoid running anymore cable through the attic I will
