    I currently have a Dish 500 connected to a 508 and 510 Receiver. I would like to upgrade the 510 to the 522 or 721 in order to get two tuners. My problem is I only have one wire feed from the wall to the receiver. I understand you need two wires from the wall in order to take advantage of the two tuner feature of the 522/721. Could someone tell me how and if it is possible to split the wire from the wall to the 522/721?

    Yes, it is possible. In order to split the wire from the wall to use in a 2-tuner receiver you need a DPP Seperator. In order to use the DPP Seperator you need all components (receivers and switch) to be Dish Pro Plus compliant.

    Also you will need either a DP+ Twin or a DP Twin with a DP+44. The DP+ and a separator essentially make your 1 line 2, for the sake of running to a DP+ compatable Dual tuner receiver. However the 721 will not work with a DP+ LNBF. For 2 receivers though just get a DP+ Twin and a 522... You do spend $5 more a month but you save on the switch.

    Is the DP+ something new? I am currantly using a 721 with DP to one receiver. I can't remember if it is a twin or dual LNB. Both lines go to my 721.

    Yes, the DP+ is new. The twin has a built in switch for a DishPro lnb for a wing satellite. The DP+44 allows for four satellite positions. The DP separator allows one line to be bifurcated to go into receivers that need two satellite feeds.
