Sorry. I didn't explain it well. I have built a new home theatre. I thought I could have a central patch panel to manage all of my wiring (sat, phone, internet), with all incoming lines ending there before being routed to the desired destinations. This, in theory, would support re-routing later on without fishing new wire if required, and ease a change to a different provider.
I was hoping to go with a 605 receiver and:
Solution 1: DISH - RG6 - CONNECTOR - RG6 - TV
but a SD CSR said the 605 will only support
Solution 2: DISH - RG6 - TV
This would mean new holes into my house and disrupting some new drywall. No hope of running an uninterrupted line with what is there now.
Bottom line question: Is SD just trying to cover themselves here or can the right kind of connector join my line and give me an acceptable signal?
This is independent of a pre-existing unbroken line from the dish to an existing tv in a different room (that I presume will remain as is). This line is connected to a 505. I didn't ask if a 505 would support a connected line but if it does I might be able to move it to the theatre and keep put a new 605 where the 505 was.
Regarding the multiswitch, this is more of a supplemental question. If I could have Solution 1 working, I was then going to change 'connector' to 'splitter' to see if I could support a 630.
Thanks in advance.
