    I am using a Direct Satellite system with a dual LNB running approximately 50 feet to a 4 output switcher. 2 of these outputs have to run an additional 300 feet. I have an in-line amp on each leg right after the switch but still have weak reception on the other end. Do I need to install another in-line in each leg about half way?

    Compare your signal strength (all transponders) at the end of the run to the signal strength at the dish. You will need a small TV, sat receiver an LONG extension cord but it is worth it. If there is very little difference, then your dish needs to be aimed better. I had 150 foot runs with no additional amps and I only lost 1 point of strength between the dish and the end of the run.
