    I have 2 tvs runing on a 722k fed by one cable down from the dish.
    second line down feeds a 311 sd setup.

    what I want to do is add another 722 and a 222.
    each one (all) will operate autonomous - like 4 different worlds.

    can I put a 2 way splitter on each of the down cables and thus
    feed the receivers ?

    and how about useing attenuators on the antenna's so when any
    are recording they dont change any of the other receivers.
    what db range would I need ?

    You can not split the line from the dish. Each receiver will need its own independent line. If you have a 1000.2/1000.4, they can support up to 3 receivers without needing an external switch (so if you plan on having 2 722's, a 222, and the 311, you would need a DPP44 switch as well).

    There are 32 different remote addresses, and (if I remember correctly) the receivers have an attenuator built in. All you would have to do is set the remotes to different addresses, and they will not bother each other

    mis type - the 311 is a 322.

    where do I find these #'s (1000.2/1000.4)?

    when the installer was here (dish has 3 lnb's - labeled as PRO) he used
    the 3rd lnb to set the dish angle with his guage. So can I use this
    to one of the new units? or the dpp44?

    currently one of the down cables is split - one going to tv1 the other to tv2.
    tv1 has the 722 and its output goes back into the cable in and I guess
    bouncing off the lnb back to tv2 ? hahaha this is WAY diff than reg cable.

    so this is what I need: ebay.com/itm/DISH-NETWORK-DPP44-Switch-Dish-Pro-Plus-and-Power-Inserter-/260911179948?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cbf84a8ac

    and I have to find a hookup directions since this is used.
    getting too old for this stuff :p

    On your remote, press menu-6-1-1-check switch, and tell me what shows up in the row next to "SWITCH"

    That is a diplexer, not a splitter. This allows your TV2 video, and satellite signal to be combined/uncombined.

    The ebay link wasn't any good for me (didn't bring anything up). Here is a link to a DPP44

    You have a 1000.2 dish. This will run up to 3 receivers without needing the DPP44. If you need 4, or more receivers hooked up, you will need a DPP44 switch.

    Also, the Holland equipment is a diplexer, not a splitter. Each receiver will need it's own line from the dish, or switch

    almost forgot to say thank you for your help.
    I will get a dpp44 - hope it comes with a good layout on
    which connectors are in/out etc and placement in the mess
    of cables. :)
