Also consider that the Hopper (and I think the Genie too) support an input for an OTA antenna.  If they want this, you should run an extra cable to each location that would have a Hopper or other receiver and an extra cable to the roof.  OTA channels are the best quality possible, you can get the subchannels and out of market channels that Dish doesn't provide and it gives you an extra tuner for recording.


You might want to prewire cat6 for wireless access points.   I would go with cat6 for future compatibility.


I doubt they would want a Hopper for the rental rooms since they probably don't want them to share a DVR (or even have a DVR).  They would probably just get regular solo HD receivers.

The Genie can support OTA, but you would need the AM21 module
