    I have two (2) lines coming in from a satellite dish but I need connections to four (4) receivers in the house (great room, rec room, and dual tuner input for theater). Can someone recommend appropriate products for this application? I'm assuming powered would be best to accommodate the long runs flowing from the junction box in the house. Passive recommendations welcome as well.

    Thanks.

    Depending on what kind of dish you have, it would be different. Round dish you can use a 2X4 multiswitch to make 2 lines 4 lines. If you have a oval dish, There should be 4 hookups on the dish itself, and you need to have home runs to the dish from the receivers. Basically, you can have multible outputs from a round dish with 2 wires and and multiswitch, or you can have multiple outputs from a oval dish with 4 wires and a multiswitch. Hope that helps
