It sure does. How many cables can you connect to it? If four, then just hook up the additional receiver. If only one, then you will need a splitter because it is the swm type lnb. You may already have the splitter in the setup.

Non-SWM SL5 has four feeds to four tuners. DVR's have two tuners. Over four you need a SWM-8 gizmo or greater. A power inserter is required.

SWM SL5s feeds eight discreet channels via one wire. Each receiver requires only one wire but a DVR will take two channels. For multiple receivers the feed from the dish must be split with an approved splitter. A power inserter is required. Over eight tuners, I imagine there is a gizmo for that.
