    I want to be ready when my HD Tivo arrives. I have a triple LNB dish on the roof and am receiving a good signal on all three satellites. I am currently receiving HD programming on my Samsung HD receiver and SD programming on the leased receiver from DirectTv. The HD Tivo is going to replace the Samsung HD unit. I know I have to run an additional coax for the two tuner HD Tivo. Here is my question: Do I need a different switch? Or are the triple LNB dishes already set up to accept more that two cables? I think I read somewhere that the triple LNB dishes have a built in switch. Any advice would be appreciated.

    a tri-LNB dish already has a bult-in multi-switch.
    "leased receiver from DirectTv."-what is this? DirecTV doesn't lease receivers and they haven't for many years. I haven't heard of anyone is quite a few years that still has a leased receiver, as I think they made people buy them out when they canceled the program.

    The triple LNB dish should have 4 leads/connections. If you are connecting 4 or fewer cables to the dish, you should not need any additional switches. From what I read, it sounds like you're running two cables from it now. You should be just fine adding another cable with no additional equipment.

    Enjoy your HR10-250! The ooh-aah factor in my house has been BIG!
