Help needed with HR10-250

Or, you could install a second dish and run two lines to your dvr from that.

Stacking technology (at least the relative cheap ones... $300 for the set) are only for the 101 sat, thus that would block out MOST of the DirecTV HD content.
See... www.tivocommunity.com for a forum dedicated to the HR10-250 (well pretty much dedicateD)

I just installed a HR10-250. I want to use the dual tuner function but I only have 1 satellite feed on that side of the house. I have tried a RF splitter, that didn't work. I called DirecTv and they told me to get a digital splitter from Best Buy. I tried that but it passed no signals thru to the 250, at least I got some signal with the cheapie splitter. Running a second feed from my 4X8 switch in the basement in not an option on this side of the house(Slab floor, Cathedral ceiling, etc.) I would appreciate any help
If you have two sat feeds going to your switch you can use a diplexer. A diplexer will carry to feeds through one line, then use another diplexer at the DVR end to split into two. It works, I am doing it. It must be a diplexer not a splitter.
