Hello all,

I am a newbie to Dish and am looking for some advice from you folks that actually own and use the system. I am helping a friend build a house and we have a bit of a unique setup in that we are installing a central equipment room upstairs in which all the electronics equipment will be stored.

We are going to have 4 High-def "Zones" in which we want to watch independant satellite channels. The house is wired with an infrared repeater system in all rooms and the main remote that will be able to control everything throughout the house is an MX-3000 that is tied into the IR repeater system.

My main concern is trying to control 4 different Dish receivers all in the same room, via IR. Do these receivers have assignable IR "channels" so that I can control them independantly? I have seen reference to remote "addresses" in the manual, but it usually is in context with the UHF remotes.

Also, are the component and HDMI outputs active simultaneously? For example, could I hook up my Projector via HDMI and my TV via component and watch the same HD picture on both simultaneously?

Sorry for the detailed technical questions on a first post but I've been on the phone for more than 4 hours over the course of the last 3 days talking to Dish and my local installer with no informative answer.

Thanks in advance,

Russell

Thanks for the response gil!

We have indeed thought very hard about how we will be routing signals, cables, etc. and have decided that the best way to accomplish what we want is via centralized equipment placement. We have already run at least 1 run of Component, audio, RG6QSx2, and 2 cat6 cables to each tv location and will be purchasing some HDMI connections to finish off the cabling. So no worries about connectivity :)

The biggest concern is controling it all with the home theater master MX-3000 remote via IR.

Oops, I was premature on my reply. It seems Saltidawg and Rob were posting at the same time as myself.

So how does one setup the universal remote to the different "addresses" of the Dish receiver? I've only seen mention of the universal sat code 0775?

Also, is tuner2 controllable via IR on the 622?

Again,

Thanks all for the input.

Rob,

Thanks again for the clarification.

That answers all my questions. It looks like I'll be going with 2 622's and 2 211's for 4 HD outputs.
