    How many TVs can I hook to my dish?

    Dish makes it seem like you can only have 4 TVs attached when you look on the website, but it seems like people arounf this forum have more than that.

    What LNBs, dish and receivers you have? There are so many possible configurations out there that giving us the equipment you have will help. How many more receivers you plan on adding?

    You can have a hundred TVs connected if you want. The real question is how many SATELLITE TUNERS (dish network receivers) can you have connected. I have 5 tuners (3 receivers) w/o any problems, but I only use these with 3 TVs.

    By cascading switches, you can connect a lot of tuners/receivers - I thought I heard (long time ago) that dish would limit you to 6 tuners??

    The normal limit I believe is 6 recievers if you buy them. They can all be dual tuners to serve 12 TVs. People that have needed more than 6 receivers have been successful going through the CEO office to get more on their account.

    Now leasing the limit is 4 Tuners. You can of course buy more boxes, but people have reported being able to get more than 4 under lease by being long term customers via the CEO office again.

    Six is the official limit, I have 7, but it's a little problem trying to get 7, you have to make sure they are all connectd to phone lines. I have a Dish 1000.2 and A Dish 500 wing dish I use for 61.5 and these run to a dual DP 44 switch which would allow me to have even more than I have now.
