I don't have time right now to read all this.
I'll have to print it and read it later.
Thanks PhantomChaos.

dish is easy as long as you run a split the cable before the TV and use a UHF remote. That way you can channel surf in the other room, garge, or from the boat in the driveway.

I recently switched from DirecTV to TW due to rain & cloud fade where I would lose the signal all together. My signal strength was always in the 90s.

I was using a single LNB with a dual hook up so I could get pic in pic or watch one channel and record (TIVO) another. Did this dual hook up weaken my signal strength during weather?? Would a oval dish with a dual LNB have prevented the fade??
Huh?? HUH??

PS.. and yes..TW reception sucks

PPSS:Great post Nort!

If you want to use 1 receiver through your house the best option is to use a modulator that will put your sat output on a uhf channel this way you can watch off air channels without the interference of the sat receiver on channel 3 or 4. If you have ir remotes controlled recievers the you can buy a ir to uhf repeater by powermid for about 40 dollars to control the sat. If you are just parchasing a sat system buy the uhf controlled units and you will not have to have a repeater. You can also by 8 way multiswiches. There are also so tricks involved when you have dual lnb set ups with the multiswiches. Forrest
