I only have one 4/4 switch but want to use two 942's. What do I need to do as far as switches, connections etc?

Thanks

More info is needed.
What switch do you have, SW44 or DPP 44?
How many total receivers will be used? what models?

You will need 1 cable for each 942 and you will need a seperator for each, that will in effect "split" the cable to feed both tuners. Note it has to be a seperator not a regular tv splitter .
You could alos just run 2 cables to each 942, but that would fill up the dpp44 and may mean more cabling.

I have the four cables needed in place. Will I need another power inverter for the 2nd 942 or will the set up (two 942's) run with just the one power inverter.
Also could I do the same thing using one 942 and one 622 instead of two 942's ?
Sorry for all the questions but I am attempting to be frugal.:D

Thanks !

If you have the four cables already then you don't need the seperators, just plug in the cables. The power inserter powers the switch not the receivers so you only need 1 power inserter (plugged into input 1 on the DPP44). The setup is exactly the same with the 622s so that would work just fine.
