You need [must have] four in, or you won't get all the HD channels.

Very straight forward. Just be careful not to change the position of the dish itself. You'll probably have to get some slack in the existing coax (undo the drip loops for example). Take two screws & nuts out, gently slide the LNB out of the arm it is mounted to. Push your two new coax up through the arm, connect to LNB then push the LNB bck into the arm and reinstall the screws & nuts. Route your new coax along with the old, making drip loops and putting in ground block before it enters the structure. Then route to the new location. If you route the new coax to the same ground block location as the old coax, then all 4 lines from the dish will be at the same place and if you ever grow beyond two DVRs, you can put the multiswitch at that location and grow from there.btbeam said:I have not yet taken the dish lnb apart to connect wires is there anything I need to know about that?

Nice bike by the way I also ride"carl6" said:Thought we had determined you did not need a multiswitch, you needed to run additional coax from the LNB anyway, so you were going straight to the receiver.
However, yes the multiswitch can go outside, but you need to use rubber boots on the connectors and should try and shield it from direct bad weather.
Thanks. I've hit 48 states and 9 provinces so far.btbeam said:Nice bike by the way I also ride
