Looking for specs on the lengths of the cable runs for the Hopper using RG-6 from the dual node, and the lengths to the Joeys from the dual node using RG-59 or RG-6 and if splitters are involved in both cases for the Joeys.
Thanks!

Scott,
Is there anyway you can check to see if we use RG-6 with no splitters, can we get about 240-250 feet.

Would like to put a Joey out in my barn.

Would only make sense that you could go another 50' over a run with 2way splitter. Or 100' over a run with 3way.

And 200' more than a run with 3way and rg-59.

However the 200' given may be for a single run of RG-6 with no splitter. :(

Don't forget in a two Hoper system you will need 3 RG -6 cable runs from the dish to the node

Most installs the node will be installed at the dish, so not much of an issue there. :)

Scott,

How much do you know about the HIC, I may need one to extend my network.

Can u stack the two slings on one Hopper, or is it one sling per Hopper.

To put an Ethernet cable on my 2nd Hopper will be a hard task. I could use wifi extender or router.
But I have an extra RG-6 cable at that location.
