Here in the US Virgin Islands my installation includes a Channel Master Type 120 1.2 meter (48") SMC Antenna with a legacy dual lnb feeding a 508 and a 301 through 100 feet each of high quality RG6 coax marked good to 2200. I can only receive the 119 bird (I think that has to do with the signal footprint out here, 1000 miles from Miami). I want to replace the 301 with a 625 dual tuner box, but I *must* make it work with the present single cable - running another cable to that location is almost impossible. I read up on the DN site and learned about DP and DPP, and concluded that I need a DP dual LNBF, a DPP-44 switch and a DPP Separator at the 625 to maintain single cable benefits to each receiver. However, the installer of the original setup is telling me that I can get away with a DP dual LNBF and an ordinary splitter (rated to 2200) at the 625. Can this be true? and if so, why would the rest of the world be doing the DPP 3-step (DPP receiver, DPP Separator and DPP LNBF or switch)? I suppose I could try it his way first, but I figured someone out there would know the answer and save me the time and annoyance.
