Note that they will only work with single pane glass and not double pane (a.k.a. ThermoPane) windows or doors. You can also use a flat coax cable adapter to run the cable under a window or door like this:
If you can mount the triple LNB dish in the existing location as your single dish then you can run four lines from the dish. It sounds like you may want to install some extra braces to help support the dish. There are braces available for the AT9 dish that should also work for the phase III dish, although the mast is a bit smaller in diameter.

Flat cable may be a solution, however the more you use the door/window it goest through, the more frequent will be your failure rates.

Thanks for the ideas. I think the flat cable might be the way to go but I'm not sure if I have clearance for it. If not i might just have them wait till I replace the Glass sliding door and maybe I'll be able to run the wires between the frame of the door and the outside frame. If not I might try to find that stacker-destacker but I think that requires power outside too. Or when I warms up I might try drilling two more holes (I'm not looking forward to that).
The one I have requires power but I just hooked the power up inside the house where I have the destacker. Works like a charm, I think you only have to put the power outside if you're doing a long run with it my current run is a from one side of my house in the front to the other side in the back.
