    Hello, Tivo Community:
    According to what I've been able to gather, I'll be able to hook up a single, dual-lnb dish, along with my 3-way(101, 110, 119) dish to a Zinwell SAM-6802 DIRECTV 6x8 multi-switch, in order to pick up my locals(Myrtle Beach, SC) on the 72.5 bird. Isn't this all I will need?
    The tech csr's at D* are telling me different stories, including that my Hughes SD-DVR40 Directivo is incapable of receiving 72.5 degrees, or that I'll need a 'special' diplexer.
    Thanks for any advice. -LT :confused:

    That's all you need, and your SD-DVR40 will work fine.

    Connect both outputs to the flexports on the 6x8.

    Well, thanks, Pat--I wondered about that, too!
