Advice as to what? the 921 and the 622 in theory are considered a 3 tv set up so in all actuality if your not going to send back any receivers then you will have a 6 tv system and will need 2 switches no matter what you do unless you go with the 622, 921, 522, and 301 and drop the 2 510's in wich case if you have the dpp44 ( there is no dp44 ) then all you will need is 3 dpp seperators and 4 dishpro diplexers to take care of the 622 and 522 backfeeds.

You should have your prefered tech come back out and do the work, and if you paid for the dpp44 then dont let the tech take that switch as you own it.

If you already have the dpp44, why is he replacing it. seems like more work. If you already have that it requires one line to 622 and 921, without it you will need two lines run to both, also boom (actually voom) dish - where is this pointed? If pointed at 61.5, may have to be repointed at 129 or replaced by dish 1000.
