    I'm thinking of getting the Hopper/Joey system. When I had the house built I had them prewire 1 dedicated sat cable to an On Q distribution box.

    For the Hopper/joey will this 1 cable to the panel work? Or do I need 2 cables?

    The Hopper/Joey system works on a central hub system with a single cable run to each receiver. If all of your cables run directly to a central location and there is room for the hub in that location you should be fine.

    The cabling from that location to the dish is two cables for a single Hopper system or three cables for a dual Hopper system.

    As long as all you need is one Hopper in your system you can get away with one cable. The node gets installed outside and a tap and splitter in your OnQ box. Not my favorite way to install them (extra cable length between receivers and node can decrease MoCA signal strength) but it is a technically acceptable install method.

    Definitely a problem. The file either doesn't exist or the path is incorrect. I get a "Connection was Reset" massage when trying to access it.:(
