I currently have a DISH system on order which will be professionally installed and I have a couple of questions I'd like to try and answer beforehand. At $59 per extra dish and receiver plus any extra time spent on site I'd like to make this process as effortless as possible.
I will be installing 3 receivers total. Two will be at the same location in the family room (6000 & DP501) and one in the bedroom (3900). I have existing RG6/U cable wiring with home runs from each location to a 4-way splitter in the basement. (no run over 60') Assuming the SW64 switch can be mounted where the current splitter is, can I simply swap the wires over from the splitter to the switch for distribution?
Where my TV is located in the living room there is a single wall jack for the existing CATV. Since I will have 2 receivers at this location can I split the signal in the room before going to each receiver? They will be virtually next to each other in the rack and about 3' from the wall jack so distance really isn't an issue. If it is possible is there a downside?
I hope I've explained my situation well enough. If anyone could comment or make any suggestions I would appreciate it.
