I know in the past you needed two coax connections to record two shows at once. Is this still the case even with newer receivers? For reasons I won't get into I can't run two cables from a dish to my box (that's why I switched to cable). Cable is about 40% more a month after my promo expires but there are some big advantages. However, I really want to switch BACK to DTV. Why does cable only need one connections but DTV needs two?
I am new to the forums, and am in a similar situation. I cannot run a second cable from the dish, and feel my only way around this is getting a Single Wire Multiswitch. Is this something I can install myself? Do I just run the 1 cable into it from the wall, and 2 out to the HR21 receiver? I looks huge to only have 1 cable in and 2 out.
