    As I told you, each TUNER must have own line to LNBF to control it independently (directly or thru a switch), you can't split legacy signals for two tuners.

    True, but if you've got enough hardware to get 1 run down the receiver, the receiver "should" function on only 1 tuner.

    I am going to start with one and go from there.

    I will keep you posted, unfortunately I will not be getting it done until next week, too busy now.

    I do appreciate all the input.

    You can get a picture with only one tuner...but it will be finicky at best, and a PITA at worse. Few things are more frustrating than trying to get the receiver to look at tuner 1 instead of tuner 2, when it is bound an determined to try and use 2.
