I work for a school and DirectTV has a promotion for schools where they will give free equipment and free programming. The only catch is you have get the install done yourself. I've done DISH installs (small) so I thought I might tackle the install myself. They have sent a triple LNB dish, and a four-eight port splitter(?). I have four receivers to install. My question is, how does the four-eight port splitter come into play? Is there any way I would only need to run 1 or 2 cables from the dish to the splitter and then run from the splitter to the receivers? I ask this as I would like to use as less of cable as I need to and four runs to the dish would eat up a lot of cable. Thanks for any help on this.
