Ok fellas, here is my problem. I have a dp34 switch that connects 2 standard receivers and a 622. I want to add another receiver. Do I just buy another dp 34 switch? and connect the cable "to additional switch" and connect them together? Sorry if this sounds stupid but I'm a civil engineer :)

A second DP34 switch is your best option. Just cascade the second switch off the first one. If you only have 119 and 110 you could use a DP21 to cascade it off the DP34 and feed the 5th receiver.

I've included a picture of my setup.

Wow!! What a thing of beauty!! You even labled the sat locations on your inputs...nice :)

Thanks. That's an old picture, it looks even nicer now. I made the jumper cables all the same length (3rd one is all twisted, DN tech made it) and made the labels more visible. It just makes it easier for troubleshooting. My wife thinks I'm nuts with all this satellite stuff. :)
