How many receivers can be powered by the DPP44 with a Dish 500 DP Twin LNBF Satelite?

I have a 625, 510, 2800/3700, and 3900

I also have a Dish 500 with a Twin LNBF (not DP)

If you want 110/119 the limit with that setup is 4 receivers. If for some reason you only wanted one satellite (doubtful) you could take the second output of the DP Twin and feed a 5th receiver, which would get both sats while the other 4 would only get one.

I think one could also connect the 5th receiver to the passthrough feed and that receiver would get only 1 sat, or a DP-21 and get both sats. I have never actually tried this, but is my understanding it works.

a DPP44 allows 4 receivers..plain and simple...now they can be dual tuner recievers if you use the separator

so in the OP's issue, he could hook all 4 receivers to it
625 on port 1 with separator
510 on port 2
2800 on port 3
3900 on port 4

Hey guys, thank you all for your responses... Much appreciated.

I bought the DPP44 USED and it did not come with the power cord to plug the power inserter into the wall (AGAIN... i have the INSERTER.. just not the power cord that connects it to the electrical supply).

I do have an old PC power supply that is the same type of plug. However, it is rated 125V.

On the Power Inserter it says 120V.

How big of a deal is this 5V difference? Should I not risk it or will it work fine?

If not, any ideas where I can replace this power supply cord and how $$

Thanks again

you have to see what the output is on that a/c adapter. I don't know what the input is on the DPP44 but the power adapter has to be the same voltage and as much amperage. Also the polarity has to be the same

somewhere on the DPP44 it should say it. Might say something like
12V DC 900ma and then there will be a - and + and the line from the center will go to one. That is the polarity

The voltage output has to be the same. Can't use a 9v if it takes 12v
the amperage can be the same or higher on the ac adapter. So if the switch takes 500ma and you have a 900ma adapter it will work

You're just missing the cable. The power cable is just that...a power cable. It does no power transformation whatsoever. It's just a straight cable. It's not a power supply. It's a cord. No different than an extension cord.

It's the same cable. Just use it.

And for all intents and purposes, 120V and 125V are the exact same. There's quite a tolerance in household voltages.

He means just the AC cable from the outlet to the power adapter. 5v does not matter. The exact ac voltage varies in about every house within a volt or two. Just use the PC cord if it works. It will not cause a problem.

so in the pic below the power inserter is attached to the little black box to the right of it? I've never seen a 44 switch in person so I am going by the pictures

The power cord that plugs into the wall is detachable from the black ac/dc power transformer. It is replaceable with any PC power cord.

Right, and the top of that "black box" (which is actually an adapter) has a jack the same as you'd find on the back of your PC, and you can unplug that 3-prong cord from it.
