I have DP Quad going into a DP34 Switch. I have heard where either feeds 1 & 2 or 3 & 4 from DP Quad must be connected directly to Dish 721. That feeds from DP34 Switch attached to Dish 721 will cause problems. Is this true?

Thanks

No, I don’t have any problems yet, I’m just getting ready to install. I didn’t think there would be any problems with this set up, just wanted to make sure. I’m using the DP Quad and DP34 Switch for multi-receiver set up.

It appears that the important thing to do with the Quad-to-DPx4 switch is to use one odd and one even numbered port. The Quad defaults to 119 on odd and 110 on even ports. So, 1 & 2, 3 & 4, or even 1 & 4, 2 & 3 should work. Most convienent for cabling (dual RG-6) is probably 1 & 2 or 3 & 4.
