Good morning, I have a legacy setup, 3 sats going to an SW64 then to 4 receivers (1 508 and 3 510's) I would like to add either a 921 or 942 and keep all four receivers or get rid of one. Is this http://www.dishnetwo...n/install-5.pdf the only way to accomplish this? I'd rather not switch to dish pro as my sats are really high up on the roof and not easily accesible to swap out the lnbf's. Thanks.

With either solution you may have to go on the roof and all that plumbing for 6 outputs on a Legacy system is just more potential problems. All of your receivers are Dish Pro compatible, bite the bullet and pay someone to do it RIGHT. :)

I agree coop - you'd be a lot better off biting the bullet now and converting over to Dishpro. The only way to do what you want with legacy equipment is what you linked to.
