Can an AT-9 Dish be used for a Geni install?
I currently have an AT-9 Dish with the 6x8 Zinwell multiswitch (4 cables from dish to switch, then 8 cables to 4 different HD Receivers).
Customer service says no issue with current dish.
I know I'm going to need a 16SWM multiswitch as I will end up with 11 tuners needed (5 genie, and 3 HD-DVRs with 2 each).
Is it simplly a matter of keeping same dish and replacing the multiswitch?
I can see me getting the run-around by the installer if they have to change the dish. 7 Years ago when I built the house - I was able to get installer to put dish on a tree. I know they pretty much won't do that anymore - so if my dish needs changing out - I can hear the run around coming.
So is this wishfull thinking that I only need a multiswitch change out? Or is there a new LNB or Dish that is also needed.
