upgrading to dish 1000 and 622

I've done a lot of reading and can't find a firm answer on this...

I have a 522 in the house and a 301 in the garage all being fed by a Dish500. There are two pieces of coax coming into the house from the dish and one piece of coax going from the dish to the garage. As far as I can tell I don't have any switches in line (which I don't understand because I'm pretty sure the 301 in the garage is picking up both 110 and 119). I'm going to replace the 522 with a new 622 and leave the 301 in place and replace the Dish500 with the new Dish1000.

Here's my question...

When I get the dish1000 and the 622 will I need any switches or run extra coax? I was hoping to get this figured out so that I could have the switches here when I get the dish and the receiver.

Thanks for any help
