I missed the B&B note also which somewhat invalidates my recommendations. 

The rental room or rooms should have a separate feed and be on a separate account unless Dish has some sort of program for rental property.

I am sure my client will just tell them it is just their house as it does not look like a B&B so kinda a mute point as who would pay more when there is no way dish or direct would have any idea. I should of not even brought it up. From the looks seems Direct would be the better way to go as I am sure they will want HD on all the TV's.  Thanks again for the tips and advice.

Except that its fraud it it's a business and there's been article recently here on this forum even about DIRECTV going after people for doing just this all over the country. Something to be mindful of is all. They hit people with 10k plus fines when they catch them.

It is important that you brought up that it is a commercial venture as it changes the landscape entirely.

There are six classes of B&B and most of them don't come anywhere near qualifying for residential status. Commercial status may bring DISH back into the game so it matters in this thread.

9 TV's are in their home.  2 TV's are in this other part of the house that they rent out once in a while. Again this is something they will have to deal with. My main concern is wiring it all up. Going to let them deal with getting the service. Will just home run it all to a cabinet and let the dish/direct  guys deal with that part. Thanks.

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
