    I currently have Direct TV in two rooms running cable from a duel LNB round dish and want to add a third receiver what is the best way to do this with out loss of signal strength?

    I Purchased the receiver and dual LNB/antenna multi-switch

    model DSV 95 at the swopmeet this weekend $40.00 for the box and $20.00 for the switch will this give me a good signal, and should I buy speacial cables for this project?

    You need a 2x4 or 3x4 multi-switch. I'm not sure exactly what type of switch you purchased based on just the model number. Who manufactured it? As for cables, just use RG6 coax.
