About 10 years ago I installed two 500 Dish receivers to two 500 receivers. Of course they are not HD. I now have a few HD TVs and decided I wanted to install new equipment and do it myself. So, I have purchased a new 1000.2 dish antenna along with three VIP222K receivers. (None of this equipment has arrived to install yet.) The intent is to have three feedlines come from the LNBF to each of the three receivers. I then will hook up a HDTV to each receiver. However, I want to take advantage of the dual receivers in each receiver to send a SD signal to three SD TVs in other rooms. (I have plenty of RG-6 going all over the house to do this.)
My problem is, I understand from talking to Dish Network, I'll need to buy two Diplexers and one Separator for each receiver. Dish Network was not cooperative in telling me what particular Diplexer and Separators I need to purchase. I also don't know where the Separators and Diplexers go. I realize the receivers have two inputs, so I am assuming either one of the Diplexers or the Separator goes here. (I don't really understand why each receiver needs two Diplexers nor do I understand what a switch is doing. I had thought a switch changed polarity on the odd and even channels but that notion comes from old big dish equipment. But if this is true and I have two TVs on one port watching different channels how can a LNB port give two channels with different polarity? There is something here I don't understand.)
Can anyone on here tell me what I specifically need to buy and how to hook them up for what I want to do? (I'm located a long way from nowhere in Texas.) A specific model number of the device would be much appreciated. (Looking all over the internet it has become apparent you need specific units for a specific LNB and receiver. I just don't want to buy the wrong thing or the wrong quantity for a 1000.2 Western Dish and VIP222K receivers. Your help would be much appreciated. I'm a ham, broadcast engineer and am fairly technically inclined on many things. Satellite TV is not my strong suit.
