A friend intends to buy a DireecTivo and slpit the signal with a conventional splitter. I have told him that it won't work but he won't believe me. What problems is he likely to encounter?
You can get much cheaper than that if you buy online at www.minidishes.tvOriginally posted by ken4kne
A multi only costs about $75 for that kind of setup. That will get you a 3 in 4 out and I bought it Radio Shack.
He'll learn real quick. He'll start getting the "Searching for satellite signal on tuner #1 or #2" all the time.Originally posted by Geronimo
I hope someone learns from this. My friend still thinks it is as simple as slplitting the cable that goes into his receiver now. I tried.
The problem is finding a Directivo for a good price. I have also used both, and prefer UTV (obviously since I have purchased two of them). You can get a two room UTV setup for free (including the dish and keyboards) after rebate, or for $39 per unit for existing customers through www.minidishes.tvOriginally posted by Mark
I'd consider DirecTiVo's - I've used both and I know I'd buy a DirecTiVo over the UltimateTV anyday - TiVo has a far nicer setup
"2] Are MultiSwitches weatherproof, if placed at the dish?"
Yes, they are more or less waterproof.

Try DirecDuo for Perfect Vision brand 3x4 MultiSwitch [also available at several higher priced places] - $19.50 + SH.
Attached is my multi-room UTV setup using a 2X6 multi-switch. It is in Adobe Acrobat. Hopefully it will help.Originally posted by OwnersEdge
While you guys are tuned in to this topic...I could use some help too. I've checked many multi-room diagrams; they don't clarify the answer, which may be obvious but it's not clear to me.
