I have the HWS downstairs and the Joy upstairs. Before I unplug everything and try it I'm needing to know if it will work or is it wired different from dish to receiver? I want to switch rooms because I will be installing an OTA antenna in the attic and it will be right above the upstairs TV. I don't want to run coax downstairs.

You will need to trade the wires at the node, wherever that might be. The coax to the room upstairs will go to Host on the node and the coax downstairs will go where wherever the other coax used to be either Client or a splitter.

If you have home runs going to all the TV's from the node/hub location then the wire swap will work. If there's a splitter located elsewhere feeding all the upstairs TV's then it's a different story.

Ok, I thought something like that was involved. Thanks for the info.
