    Hopper Conection Without Joey

    I wish to connect a Hopper without a Joey until I can instal the cable to the back room for the Joey. Is this as easy as disconnecting a 722, and attaching the same coax to the Hopper without going through a Node? Or run the standard two coax into the Node and one out to the Hopper?

    I disagree. The US is a free enterprise system. Why would you want big government to tell two non government businesses what to do? It's not Canada and the CRTC you know! You don't realize how much a pain the CRTC can be.

    The LOS line for the 1000.2 goes down the west side of the building as seen in the first picture (not due South). It was iffy. I then had an installer try to get a signal to no avail (we strapped the dish on a post temporally) Plan to use the pole or tripod method for 129W. This picture...
