My setup is the folowing

1 DishPro Twin LNBF hooked to 1 DP34, this DP34 is hooked to another DP34 so I have 4 output left, can I take 2 output of the DP34 and put them into each input of the 9200? I think it will work since the 6100 is a Dishproplus receiver and it works fine now hooked the same way via a DP34

Yes, that will work Haryi99Si.

Anybody who has 2 outputs left on their switch and/or Quad LNB and is able to run 2 lines to the receiver will be fine. The main reason for this thread is for those who either cannot run 2 lines, or are running out of room on their switches.

Not that I am discouraging discussion or questions, of course. :D

BD- the legacy hardware will work fine with the newer receivers as well as the older ones. Just to summarize:

Legacy- works will all recivers; Dish Pro and Lecacy- allows 100 foot cable runs
Dish Pro- works only with Dish Pro receivers- allows 200 foot cable runs
Dish Pro Plus- works with legacy as long as there is also a Dish Pro receiver in the mix- allows for 200 foot cable runs and allows for seperators.
Thanks Ken! Good to know that my little investment is not wasted.

I currently have a pretty standard BEV setup with a 6100 and 3100 and 2 SW21 feeding 2 cables into the house. I picked up a RCA CVHD6520 multiswitch cheap. Can I run the 2 cables coming into the house into this, then run 2 cables into the 9200 and one each into the 6100 and 3100? Is there a limit to how far the CVHD6520 can be from the dish?

Thanks

I don't understand how you guys know that the DPP Twin LNB and the separator will work with a BEV receiver. In the manual and the description of the Dish Pro Plus LNBF it clearly says that this product requires the right software to be downloaded onto the receiver. Up to this moment I haven't seen any indication that BEV will release software support for any kind of Dish Pro or Dish pro Plus hardware. Theoretically it may never support them, so everything described in this thread here will be a waste of time and money.
Am I missing anything? Did Bell officially announce they will support Dish Pro Plus?

Arthur:

DPP support is in the firmware of the reciever when you get it. BEV would have to specifically pull out the code in their firmware for DPP support. They have the support in the 6100 and the 5900 that I know of, so why would they pull it from the 9200?

Hello all,

I'll repost an earlier question in this more relevant thread.

Does anyone know if I can get a working 9200 system with three (not four) cables coming from the dish into a SW44? If so, would there be a specific way to arrange them?

I ask as I had three cables run through the wall in my new house, trying to anticipate future needs (D'oh!!!).

Putting the SW44 outside with the dish and running four inputs/three outputs is apparently not feasible (weatherproofing ). If three inputs won't work, could I split one before the SW44?

Thanks in advance, and apologies for the repost for those who already saw my earlier query.

How do you know?
I received my training yesterday. I was surprised that they are including the SW44 with it.

Do you know if existing customers with no HDTV will be allowed to get the 9220?

Or existing customer with HDTV? There have been conflicting reports about the ability of existing HDTV customers to purchase the 9220. Especially now that they are including an SW44 switch vs. the single SW21 we got with the 6120. It would be really unfair to limit existing HDTV subs from buying the 9220. Not that I would expect any less from Bell......:(

Yes to both, however the are setting up two kits, one for new customers, and one for existing customers. The boxes are the same as well as the contents, however there will be a sticker on the box for existing customers. Don't think just because a store has a pile of 9220's in stock that they can sell you one, you'll need the 9200 receiver kit.

I don't get it? If the contents are the same there is no reason to setup 2 kits. There must be something different. My guess. There will be no SW44 switch.

My guess is that it is an easier way to control stock levels. If you were ExpressVu and you were running low on inventory of 9200 receivers who would be the first to get them, new customers or existing. I think that it is an easy way to control the ratio based on demand.

Best advice, buy as earlier as possible to avoid that possible situation.

BTW I don't work for ExpressVu so I am just guessing.

First of all, I didn't get a SW21 with my 6100. I got the receiver, the remote, and the cables only. (Came in the plain brown box direct from Bell - not the mostly white colored boxes you see in the stores.) I had to run out to the store to buy a SW21 for another $30. I sure got hosed on the price of my 6100 ($699).

Anyway, Deckster I don't quite understand your answer. Are you saying:

New Customers: 9220 without sticker
Existing HD Customers: 9220 with sticker or
Existing HD Customers: 9200 with sticker
Existing non-HD Customers: 9220 without sticker

And if the box and contents are the same, then what's the purpose of the sticker again?

How could you be trained and know what Bell is going to include then?
I work at Bell World, we have access to all sorts of training. I however am not privi to ExpressVu's levels of stock and access to stock. That is why I am guessing on the reason for two different kits
