Best way for my DTV install?

    I need advice for the best way to install DTV...I currently have DTV w/ a 2 lnb dish that feeds to a multiswitch into my house. From the multiswitch I have 2 lines to Tivo #1, 2 lines to Tivo #2 and 1 line to a regular receiver.

    I am moving soon to a tri-level home (no basement and attic does not seem accesable).

    I will be using DTV's moving program to have everything installed in the new house but the question is would it be best to just get another 2 lnb dish and do the setup like I have now? (my multiswitch is not an outdoor switch though so I don't know how this would be installed)

    The configuration in the new house will be 1 Tivo in lower level, 1 Tivo in upper level bedroom #1, 1 regular receiver in bedroom #2, and another regular receiver in bedroom #3 (6 lines).

    If I order the 3 lnb w/ the multiswitch built in, won't I still need my current multiswitch because I will need soo many lines ran?

    The installer should provide everything as long as he is aware of all the recievers
