Directv phase 3 dish wiring
Posted 25 June 2006 - 07:11 PM
The dish is way out at hte corner of my property, and running another wire from there would require about 250' of coax. I don't really want to have to do this.
Can I add a 3x4 switch inline with just the 2 wires in from the dish. I have done this in the past to feed additonal receivers, but I'm not sure it really worked right and the switches I add seem to burn up or something. They quit working after a while. Is there a specific type of switch I should be using to attempt this?

To all who have a triple LNB or 5LNB dish installed, make sure all possible lines are run regardless of need.

It wasn't until I replaced that with a phase 3 that the issue came up. At that point I tried to shortcut running 2 more wires so I can take my medicine.
I went to lowes last night and bought 2 spools fo RG6. I will be running 2 more lines now (even though I only NEED 1 right now, hehe).
