Hello - I have purchased a used PVR for use with my Shaw satellite and am not 100% sure how to now hook it up. We've got it working to watch cable, but am I correct in understanding that I need to run a second cable line from the satellite outside into the house to hook up to the back of the PVR, or can I just splice the cable we currently have running so that it will hook into both spots in the back of the PVR?

Puzzled by your reference to cable, but assuming it is a Starchoice Satellite (Shawdirect) PVR model 530, then you need two feeds from the dish.
Your dish also needs to be the eliptical dish, not the old larger round dish

Sorry for the confusion - yes, I meant satellite. Thanks for the reply! I was thinking that's what we needed to try and do but wanted to be sure before we attempted to add a line through the house.
