Currently, I have two separate Directv feeds to different rooms in my home. Both are connected to HR24's. One feed goes into an exercise room where it is connected to an HDMI powered splitter so that the HD signal is transmitted to a bedroom. The other feed goes directly to my living room and is not split.

I'm renovating a 16' x 24' structure to make a multipurpose room and would like to install another HR24. Is there some way to split the signal at the Directv dish and run a cable to the new structure. If so, what type of cable would need to be run from (1) the Directv dish to the new structure and (2) inside the new structure. Obviously, I would like it to be an HD not an SD signal. Would Directv install a new setup free-of-charge or would I have to purchase a new HR24 from Directv or a retailer.

Thanks for your help

Alot depends on what dish you currently have, if it is a SWM set up, you'll have 1 line coming from the dish going to a splitter somewhere, if you need to add a line for the new HR24, THAT is where you'll connect it.

If it's a Non SWM dish set up, you'll run to the LNB or MultiSwitch depending on your set up again. If theres 4 lines, you'll need to add a WB68 MS OR change to the SWM set up.

You would use RG6 coax if you ran it yourself.

I would call D* and or your local guy and ask about it, if your paying for the HR24, they MAY do the install free, don't know, thats up to them.

Thanks,
