Can anyone give me info on how I can connect both my 5900 PVR and a 9241 HD PVR. Connection so far- 2 Dual LNB's each connected to SW21, 2 RG6 cables going into house and both plugged into 9241 HD PVR. Can I split off one of the RG6 ( with a switch ) and connect it to 5900 PVR? Any info would be great thank you.

You would need to replace your SW21 with a SW44 and run a new line from your 5900 PVR to the SW44. The lines cannot have splitters after the switches.

Yep, that is simplest way now to connect 2 receivers for sure.

Just replace BOTH LNBF's, remove the SW21, run 1 line to each Receiver, add the DPP Separator behind the 9241 and away you go. No Dish re-alignment as long as you don't move it when removing the old LNBF's.

Your both right the DPP is easier, i just figured it might be easier to get a SW44.

True enough the price for SW44's is certainly low now, so it would be a cheap way to do it for sure.
