Sorry..... I wasn't completely clear.....

If you want to use the dual tuner feature of the Dish VIP722K receiver then Winegard says I need two cables. Dual tuner means that you could watch two different programs on two different TV's so long as the 2 channels being watched are on the same satellite.

I basically told Winegard that their engineering dept was worthless for having designed such an mess..... And at a well elevated cost of $700.

Dish Network (in home installations) passes the signal for both tuners down the same wire and even uses that wire for OUTPUTTIING the video from the rec to the second TV. In other words there THREE separate "conversations" going on over a single COAX. Yet Winegard needs two wires to feed two tuners. HUMBUG!!

In fairness to Winegard, their Customer Service is one of the best I've ever dealt with. I profusely aplogized to the CS guy for getting in his face.

He came back and said that as far as he knew, there is not a single "dome antenna" on the market today, that doesn't require two wires for two tuners.

So..... instead of trying to search out the location on the roof for the satellite prep location, I'm going to try to locate the antenna just above the multimedia cabinet and hope I don't hit wiring or anything else that may be in there. Then I can run the TWO COAX straight down along with 12V power wire for the carryout.

Boowho??
