I recently bought an RV with a Winegard Traveler satellite dish. I have changed it over to the Dish Network LNB and plan to install 3 Wally's. I currently have a single coax running from the Traveler to the inside of the MH. I understand I will need to run 3 separate coax cables from the traveler (using A, B, and C) each to a separate Wally. Is it possible to use the DPP 44 switch to get the 3 wally's to work from a single coax from the traveler?

The issue is for each Wally to have access to any of the three LNBFs on the dish. In Dish Pro Plus, one coax can multiplex two data streams. So one coax is not enough.

A switch takes in the three feeds from the Trav'ler and distributes them. So you would need three cables from the Trav'ler anyways.

You might get away with two coax cable from the Trav'ler and use a diplexer to spit one of the cables between two of the Wally. But if you have to run one more coax, two is just as easy.

Thank you for the reply, this is what I was told by dish. Looks like I will be fishing and pulling cable today!
