Installation Help DISH 625 and two 322's

725 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  shadowray
I have two rooms running off of a Dish 625, the other two rooms run from a Dish 322. I want to add a new 322 I just bought to a fifth tv in another room. Just to run one TV. From my satellite there are two cables, so I tried to split that with a standard splitter and ran one single cable to my new 322. Does not work, I am completely confused by satellite installations. I am a handyman of sorts and do not want to pay an installer, I want to know how to do it myself. Can anyone help?:confused:

You should first check to see if your dish setup has a third output from the lnb (the eye on the dish facing the reflector) and run the new coax from there, if there isn't one, you then need a switch (preferably a DPP44 switch. The current outputs from the lnb would need to be run to the switch and the coax runs (including the new line) would then need to be run from the switch instead of the lnb.
Agree the only other alternative I see is a 1000.2 dish to replace your dish 500. But that means you need to become an installer instead of a handyman.
