Nope, just leave it as isgores95 said:1. Is it as easy as it seems? I will have two multiswitches hooked up (counting the builit in one) and hope this does not present a problem. I understand I should not bypass the built in MS when hooking up to the new MS...true?
NO difference whatsoever - all 4 outs from the oval are identical2. Any order the inputs need to be connected to the new multiswitch....they have different labels: 18V/22KHz Sat B; 18V/0KHz Sat A; 13V/22KHz Sat B; 13V/0KHz Sat A? Does it matter where the inputs are hooked into the new multiswitch?
As long as it is decent quality RG-6, it should be fine. (technically, it's supposed to be swept to at least 1.5ghz, but most RG-6 cable is manufactured to these specs anyway) If it's a name brand such as Belden or Comscope, you should be good to go3. Can I use standard cable TV wire for these hookups?
Yes, DON'T use those stupid "twist on" coax connectors that don't require tools that I see so many people use - at minimum, use connectors that require a hex crimp, or compression fittings. (even better)I will have to drill a few more holes from the Dish into my basement but the multiswitch will actually be only about 10 feet from the dish. Any other advice for a wiring newbie???
Sounds like you have everything together - good luck.
