Installing a Dish 1000.2 ... Need Tips !!??

I'm going to be replacing my Dish 500+ with a 1000.2 and could use any tips you may have on cabling, tuning, if I should use a meter (if so .. which), etc.. Current setup up is typical ... 4 RG6 runs to 2 switches then on to two receivers/dual room setup on each. I bought a ViP722 which will be replacing both the current receivers. I understand the switches will no longer be needed and I should only need one RG6 feed to the 722. I guess one question would be, should I go ahead and connect all 4 LNB cables for possible later use or stick with just one going to the 722 ???

Thanks in advance !!!

Yes connect the cables, mainly so they will not be out in the weather and deteriorate. The 1000.2 has only 3 outputs, but it has an input for a 4th orbital location.

I've heard the 1000.2 is not an easy one to align, so good luck.
