    I would like to add another HD DVR, I currently have one, plus two other receivers, is 5 lines two many off the one satellite dish? Does Directv charge to run another line for the HD DVR if I make the purchase?

    To run more than 4 cables, you need to install a multiswitch. You will have to contact Directv to determine if there will be any charge for the installation.

    Call them and they can setup the order and they will provide the equipment necessary.

    To answer your question it's almost unlimited with the proper equipment.

    As noted, there is no real limit on how many receivers can be run. However there may well be a cost for installation of additional receivers and associated equipment. Only way to find out is to call, as others have suggested.

    The cost will be $199 + $19.99 with free installation. Has anyone had luch getting a better price?

    But that is the normal price and better deals aren't always available (of course it doesn't hurt to ask).
