A professional installed my Directv dish (oval) and hooked it up my Philips Directv/TiVo unit. I have since added the Zenith sat520 HD stb, which I want to run on another input on the TV.


There are two coax cables coming out of the wall, each I assume, are for the two tuners of the Philips unit. How do I connect the Zenith without losing any signal strength?

The Zenith needs its own feed from the dish also, but there are cascadable multiswitches out there that will take 2 feeds and provide 4 (or 8) out. Note you CANNOT just split one of the feeds.


So, you either need an additional multiswitch, or a 3rd feed from the dish, or just use 1 tuner in the Tivo.
