what do I need to buy?
Posted 17 February 2006 - 02:50 PM
The installer that came out to give me the R10 put in what he called a 2x3 splitter. I didn't think to visually look at it to see what it really is.
I just called the customer retention number and got the woman to give me an additional $150 credit if I buy a HR10-250. She said I could buy one from a store and would qualify for the credit and the $200 standard rebate since I wanted to install it myself.
My plan is to retire the old receiver and end up with 2 DirecTiVo units.
Looking at BestBuy's web site, it looks like there is no antenna included with the HR10-250 package. I'm just trying to figure out what all I'd have to buy in order to get it to work.
Will I need a triple LNB antenna and an additional splitter to provide the 4 inputs to my 2 DirecTiVo units?
BTW, I already have an antenna in my attic that provides a beautiful signal for HD reception.

You can then use the OTA antenna to get the "networks" in High Def.
You would then need a 4x8 multiswitch, so you could continue using your other DirecTivo units.

They also threw in some free programming for good measure. I think it's the Showtime package for 3 months.
