    I know this question has been asked a million times, but after an hour of searching with unclear results, I thought it easier to ask again. I have a dual LNB oval direct tv dish with a multiswitch with four outputs on the roof.
    I have one cable going to one room and another to a second room. Can I somehow split the one cable for the two tuners in the TIVO box or use two receivers off that cable. I dont want to run another cable from the roof. If I cant do it off the one cable can someone explain why not. A technical discussion of what the multiswitch is doing would be great, so I can figure it out.
    Thanks,
    jerry
