If I understand your current configuration correctly, then the installer was correct. See my diagrams .....

For HiDef your installer will probably want to install a new AT9 or SlimLine 5-LNB dish, but even with the older 3-LNB dish you cannot use a 2x4 multiswitch to distrubute all of the satellite signals required for the HiDef channels. So I think your best bet is to change your configuration as I've diagrammed ....

1) Have the installer change your dish to the 5-LNB HiDef dish
2) Have the installer provide a new Zinwell WB68 6x8 multiswitch
3) Run a fourth line from the dish to your garage where the new multiswitch will go
4) Run additional cables to the Living Room for all of your DVRs and the new HiDef Receiver. You cannot use a multiswitch there and properly pass the HiDef satellite signals.

Hope this helps.
