On the newer style of DPP LNB's it has a LNB Input from another dish pro lnb, the question that I have is what is the maximum length of cable that can span the LNB input side and the dish pro LNB mounted on the other dish ? Thanks in advance!

as long as your total run from dish to dish and dpp twin to house is 200' or less you will have zero issues......that being said I have a install at my cottage where the run is over 300' and I have not experienced any issues yet.....

Length would be roughly 200 or less, so I am in the clear (want to mount Dish 500+ on garage where it is clear but can't pick 129 due to tress where garage mount is, but it clears on the roof of the house)

Yes as TheMack said that will be fine.Make sure you use quality coax and if possible make a straight run (ie no splices)
