I currently have a bell satelite with the dual tuner set up to it. I recently got another tv and an older 5900 reciever from my brother. Is there any way I can hook this reciever up to run off the dish as well?

Call Bell and have them add the receiver to your account. Your bother might have to call also to confirm he has 'sold' it to you. If it is a rental receiver he can't sell it to you.
You will also need proper cables from the dish to the new receiver.

Depending on your existing receiver you might need a 2 x 4 switch or an SW44 or maybe a DPP Twin LNBF.

Let us know what receiver model your existing one is and how many lines run to it, we will try and point you in the right direction for a switch.
