What is the cheapest you guys have seen for a Sw44-a ?
Their is nothing on EBAY & the best price I have seen on the net is $100 from a place in Calgary.

Have you considered moving to Dish Pro Plus hardware? I currently have 3 dual tuner receivers and a single tuner receiver connected to a DPP44 switch. Plus you only need 2 cable runs from the dish. I think its a cleaner solution than cascading switches.

Do you need a different LNB with that set up ??
2007-08-03, 02:29 PM
Yes, you need a Dish Pro Plus Twin Lnb. You can get them fairly cheap on ebay.

I look for it, Thnks.
So it will connect on to the Bell Dish though right ?
2007-08-03, 02:39 PM
Yep, it fits in the Y-adapter perfectly.

yes, bell 20" "dish" is a dishnetwork dish 500. The lnb will slide into the y yoke.

I presently have a 6100 and 3 4100s. At the end of my 2 year rental contract in November I would like to get rid of my 6100 and all its freezing issues. As an alternative to switching providers I am wondering about going with a 9200. My thoughts are get rid of 6100 and one 4100 and replace with 9200. The 9200 runs the HD TV and let the other SD tuner in it run another TV. Other than the logistics of getting BEV to understand what equipment changes I want to make what physically would need to be done in terms of installation? Can I just plug the 9200 in as a replacement to the 6100? Do I just run the existing 4100 cable into the back of 9200 for SD? Am I correct in thinking that the 9200 can be controlled remotely from another room? The HD set is in master bedroom and other set is in another bedroom on same floor about 35 feet away. The dish sits just outside master bedroom with lines for other TVs run outside the house. Quite neatly done so that is fine. The existing switch is mounted outside underneath the dish. Thanks in advance for any input.

Yes, yes (2 feeds are required for a 9200 to operate properly)and yes. The 9200 will need 2 feeds, and a line will have to be run from the 9200 to the TV in a adjacent room. The HD will operate on tunner 1 in the master Bed room, the second room will have SD. The remote for the second tunner is UHF so it will work in another room
Actually to use a DPP44 switch you can use DP or DPP lnb's.

Will the dpp seperator still work with a dpp44 if a regular dp twin lnb is used.
yes the separator will work if you use a DPP44 switch.
For the switch to work you need to use any DP(dual, twin, quad) or DPP lnb. Only one line per satellite would be required for the quad.

Does anyone know of places in Canada (ideally GTA) that sell the dish pro plus equipment? The separator and the twin lnb?
One ******** do a search for dp lnb and change location to canada only. The one seller left is from hamilton and have dealt with him before with no issues.

Thanks, I just need to make sure of this....
We currently have one dish that's feeding 5 functioning receivers...the problem is the room that we want the 9200 in only has one cable running from the multiswitch. I just want to use the separator to split the signal from that one cable. Do I still need to switch the LNB on the dish?
Also, do I need to buy the DPP44 switch as well?
I'm starting to think it would be cheaper to pay someone to tear down the walls and put in a second line....
EDIT again: IF i only feed one wire into the 9200, will it still function? I only need it for one TV, I don't need PIP or anything like that. I just want HD channels, and the PVR.

If you go with a dpp 44 switch, you can add a dpp seperator at the end of the line and split 1 feed into 2 to supply both tuners.
You will need dp lnbs a dp/ddp twin will do the job

I just picked up a brand new DPP Twin Lnb plus separator on ebay for a friend and the total came to $45 US shipped to me in Calgary. I have bought from this seller previously so I can attest to his quality. If anyone is interested send me a PM and I can forward you his info.

Why won't Remote #1 work on a non HD TV? If both TV's are non HD untill your new HD TV arrives.
2007-08-23, 03:12 PM
Can you clarify.?
Is it the remote that is not working or the 9200 that will not output to your SD TV.?

Hello - I have an installer coming on Sunday to upgrade my dish to receive 82. The question I have is regarding the feeds coming off of the dish. Currently, I have 1 LNB receiving 91w that has 2 feeds coming into my house into some sort of splitter that takes both of those inputs and outputs 3 or 4 feeds.
My new setup will include the following:
- 1 9200 receiver
- 2 3100 receivers
- 1 DVB PCI card (currently receiving 91, ultimaly would like it to receive 82 as well).
My question is regarding the feeds off the dish. The rep on the phone when I scheduled the install mentioned that seeing I have 2 feeds coming off of the 91 LNB currently, that the installer would not have to run any more wires and would only have to take one of the 91 feeds and put it into the 82 LNB. Is this correct? Will I still be able to run 2 HD and 2 SD connections off of this type of setup (including the DVB card)? What is the benefit of running 4 wires vs. 2 off the Sat?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
