Upgraded to a 722 from a 508 and 510 almost a year ago. Considering rerouting cables from dish to receiver. I have an opportunity to run cables from dish on roof into attic and down a chase to receiver. This would eliminate most outside cabling. Run would be about 25 feet longer than existing. Can I use barrel connectors to lengthen cables? Also, I discovered the installer used one of the two cables from dish to split to inputs on the 722. Then he connected the second cable from dish to the ANT input. I realized he wasn't the sharpest when he was on site, but hard to believe. Is there any advantage to eliminating the splitter and just using the two cables to the two SAT inputs?
