How many receivers can I connect to one dish?
Right now I'm on an "Eastern Arc" setup with two satellites on my roof. I'm not sure what kind of how they hooked up.
I also have two receivers in my house.
If I wanted to add a third receiver, could I just split the line coming into one of the receivers?

You can have 3 receivers with an EA system (1000.4) but you can't "split the line". A separate RG6 coax cable has to run from the output @ the dish to the 3rd receiver. Hope this helps!
No. The system will not work with splitters. There is something called a separator, but we need more information on your setup. What model receivers do you have? How many coax cables are coming from the dish? How many to each receiver?

3 lines to a 44 sw. You can use up to 3 44sw in sequence on a k4. You do the math.
2 dishs might mean you have a 110/119/615 set up.
You sure you are using both dishs? Sure you don't have a k4 and the tech didn't take the old dish down?
Go to the system info an see what you have
It depends upon how many LNB's you have connected to the dish. A household can have a total of 6 TV's connected independently, so that's either 6 solo rcvrs or 3 duos.
