Dish -- 4 way Splitter --- Port 1 --- Power inserter --- Hr21

a few pics i have seen place the power inserter Like this


Dish --- Power Inserter --- 4 way splitter --- hr21

As long as the splitter he used is a "power pass on port 1" splitter, it doesn't really matter.
Personally, I would always try to put the PI between the dish & splitter, but maybe in your case, he couldn't do that? (maybe) The only thing that would concern you, is that if you need to change any of those connections for any reason, would be to make SURE you put the PI back on the same port. (lest you burn out your receivers by improperly connecting things back up...)

Well said dishrich.

Always best to have the PI first in line to the dish :)
