    I just bought a lake house and it has a Didh Network 1000.2 Dish Pro Plus dish. I'm already a Dish Network customer and have 2 viP211z's I've been using in my RV. There is a double coax running from the dish to the house, but only one coax is connected at the house. The Original owners had that one coax connected to a splitter and was trying to run 2 wallys but it would cut in and out due to partial or total signal loss. My vip211's are doing the same thing. Can i connect both coax cables, 1 to each receiver to correct this problem? If so, how do the need to be connected?

    One coax each connected to ports 1 & 2 on the DPP LNB with each one running to one of the two 211's. No splitters, no switches needed, just run a check switch after connecting. It doesn't matter which port is connected to which 211. Even port 3 would work...

    Like NYDutch was saying - the previous owners were hooking it up wrong. Follow what he said and the two 211's will work just fine.

    I beginning to think that answering questions is not such a great idea anymore, since we never get any feedback on our answers.
