Ok, i currently have the 3lnb dish with an H10(HD Receiver), and 3 SD Receivers, I want to add a SD DVR. The current set-up is 4 lines from the dish, into the house and connected directly to the 4 receivers.

Now the question..I need a 4x8 multiswitch right? So I can add another line to the DVR.
Where would I get a 4x8 switch? How much $?
The ones I see online have plug for an outlet...why? Does it need to be plugged in?
Lastly, how can I tell which wire from the Dish goes to which input on the 4x8 Multiswitch?

I know I have alot of questions...sorry.

Thanks for the assistance, all I want to do is record some Noggin/Disney shows for my 2 year old son!!!

:D

Any 4x8 will work you just need to connect the 4 lines from the dish. It doesn't matter which is connected to what input on the switch.
Some are powered and therefore need the electric connections. Others pass the power the receiver sends out to the LNB and does not need to have the power connection.
