I just converted from DISH network from a 110/119 & 61.5 install to DirectTV with UTV. I used my existing DISH 500 with the dual LNB from my 61.5 dish and the Twin LNB got packed with my old DISH network PVR501 rcvr. I then repointed the DISH to 101, and connected all of my wires up. I then removed my DISH network sw-21's and rejoined the wires using F-F connectors. Sw-21's were outside under 61.5 dish, were DISH insisted they go. Now everything is inside house in basement. Since my cableing comes in underground from garage.

In my basement I then installed a 3x8 multiswitch which I picked up for a reasonable price at Minidishes.com

Then connected all my rooms up for the future and installed the UTV unit.

From what I know, most of these switches arent designed to be installed outdoors. The moisture doesnt do justice for them. But a select few are designed for outdoor use. But Dish Depot does sell the enclosures for outdoors. I would still put them inside whenever possible.
