1) It should work with just a single SAT input.
2) Yes
3) No, there is no real benefit from buying from a vendor
4) From DirecTV... installer, from a Vendor... they will ship it to you

There are 4 outputs on the Slimline dish...

Each run can be used to supply the signal to a single tuner.
So you can have up to 4 with out a multiswitch.

But you will need all 4 with a multiswitch.

I could swear there are only 3 coming out of the LNB arm that I could see, I'll take a closer look tomorrow with daylight.
There probably is only 3.... you probably had an installer that decided not to run the 4th line for what ever reason... (I wish it would at least be standard that run all 4 at least to the grounding block).

You should do a search on FTM, so you can see some of the technology that should be comming in early 2007.

That will allow you to run a single line, but still get dual tuner support.
Not sure yet if the FTM is going to allow OTA to be diplexed in yet or not...

But depending on what kind of area you are in, and what frequency your networks are on... you may get away with a "set-top" antenna for your ota
