So I dropped DirecTV a couple of years ago in favor of TiVO & TimeWarner because I have 8 TVs (I know it's ridiculous) but only 2 at most are in use at any time. So monthly cost was less, but yes I had to buy the TiVos but they have resale value so accounting wise I was better off. I am tired of tuning adapter problems and thinking of going back to DirecTV or Dish. I really want to do that latter, but I have a few questions I searched for and can't find: 1) What will they equipment-wise for 8 TVs? I know I can get a Hopper 3 with 6 Joeys MAX--I think I have to actually purchase one of those Joey's outright, but what about the 8th TV? Can I buy a 8th Joey on my own and add it? Or will the Hopper simply not allow that. 2) I have a centralized wiring plant, how many coax lines do I need from the Dish to the central hub point? I assume Dish has splitters/multi switches like DirecTV. 3) Will my locals show up as their actual channel #? Like broadcast channel 12, be 12 in the guide or something like 1012. I am in Cincinnati if that matters. Thanks in advance for the help. And sharing a Joey on 2 TVs is not really what I want to do, i want discrete channel capabilities on all of them.
