I was wondering.
When I originally ordered my Dish back in March, I only ordered the two-room setup (dual DVR). When I called I was told that there were no plans of picking up my locals by Dish. If I had known then that they were going to offer the locals in such a short time, I would have just done a three-room install. So I decided to keep our basic cable in my bedroom. Well, two months later they unveiled our locals, and I really want to add dish into my bedroom and cancel our local cable all together, they really stink. The reason I went to dish is they upped my cable prices from 64 bucks to 118.00 in one month. I love dish, but I was wondering if thereís an inexpensive way to add a third room three months after my original install, or if Iím going to have to pay out a couple hundred bucks to add the third room?

DishPro quad LNB: $60.00
Dish 311 receiver: $99.00
RG-6 cable from the dish to the room: ?
You might get a DP34 switch ($70.00) instead of the quad LNB. If you already have a quad LNB, then that's good. You won't need a switch or another LNB.
I ran a new line from my quad LNB to another bedroom yesterday. It wasn't that hard.

301/311 remanufactured receiver: $79.00
DP+ Twin: $35.00
DP+ Separator: $5.00
50' RG-6 coax: $20 (approx)
Replace your DP Twin with a DPP Twin. You will only need one line ran to each receiver. At the dual-tuner DVR, just split the line using the DP+ Separator. Depending on how far your 3rd room is from the dish, it shouldn't take more than an hour or so to run the line

I have the cable split at the back of my Dual DVR, so whatever I watch in the living room is on the tv in the bedroom. So if I continue this setup, what else do I need to do?
