    After looking at the schematic in the Leviton catalog, I'm a little confused on how to hook everything up. From what I can tell it has two inputs for a satellite dual LNB, a single input for an antenna and 8 outputs for various tv locations through out the house. What's really confusing me are the two outputs for the satellite receivers. How do the eight TV locations get a signal from the satellite if there are no inputs back into the module from the receivers? Are each of the eight TV locations supposed to have it's own Satellite receiver, and if so, why the two additional outputs?

    If the signals from the antenna and both LNB's are combined in the multiswitch, what happens at each receiver? Do you need a signal splitter so you can connect up the separate inputs on the receiver?

    The receivers I've seen have 1 input for antenna, 1 for sat. I believe DirectTivo systems also require the other LNB input but I'm not sure about that one.

    Does merging the signals onto a single coax introduce any noise into the picture?
