Sorry guys, forgot to update this thread once I got my problem sorted. I ordered 1000 ft of rg11 cable and ran the line from the dish to the receiver. I tried the sonora amplifier but couldn't get it to work, so I either had it hooked up wrong (highly possible) or it just didn't work. However, it turns out I simply didn't need it. I mocked up the setup before it was installed and running through the entire 1000ft length we had next to no voltage loss to the receiver. I wound up using only about half the length, and when it was installed I got a signal of 55db, which seems to work just fine. So definitely thank you for the help on that front! Now I have a minor issue I was hoping you could further assist me with. I've created a separate post about this on the main forum, but thought you folks might know as well. I have a set of wireless headphones set up in my system that sound awesome when watching a blu-ray, but very lackluster when watching TV. If I was able to get that sonora amplifier to work in my system, would that increase the volume on those headphones?
