As far as I'm aware, what you want cannot be done without additional equipment. Depending on the dish setup, you might need a switch to accomplish this. You most definitely cannot just split that single feed, but depending on your dish assembly, if it has a built-in switch you might be able to run another line from the dish to the other receiver.

If you expect complete tuning flexibility on both receivers, there's no way around a second cable from the dish.

there are LNBF with two or four outputs - dual and quad LNBFs
Adding LNB outputs does not improve your chances of stacking more receivers onto a single cable.

That's what I was afraid of. I'm 150 feet from the dish and had to install RG11 to get enough signal from the LMB. I don't want to spend the $$'s to put in another line, so I'll just split the DVR output.

DishPro LNBs (Low Noise Block) are supposed to be good up to 200' on SCC RG6 so you may be stepping over dollars to pick up dimes. The 311 and 512 are both DishPro compatible.

Can't run 2 receivers from 1 cable - period.
He could run the 311 and that DVR512 off one cable for each receiver, IF he was using a DPP TWIN LNB on a dish500 pointing at 119/110. Or have DishPro LNB for 119 and 110, 1 cable for each, then join them at the house with a DP34 switch. (would use 1 output for each tuner).
