    If you have a Dish500 with a Twin or Quad LNB, you just add a passive/DC block splitter on to one output. The DC passive output of the splitter will go to your 6000. The DC blocked output of the splitter will go to the DirecTV receiver. Just tune the 6000 to a channel that is on the 119 sat and the correct polarization. I've read somewhere that it's Nickelodeon.

    If you have two dual LNB's and an SW64 switch on your Dish500, use the same type of splitter. You will attach it to the one of the outputs of the 119 LNB. I'm not sure which one but this way you will not even have to turn on the 6000 receiver.
