Below we provide some diagrams to illustrate just how easy it is to get the largest programming choice in the world! These are in an easy to use format called a PDF. Just download and print with the help of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
(If you do not have this, Click Here to download this reader to get these diagrams!)

Traditional DISH 500 Installation using two Dual LNBF's, two SW21s for two receivers
This installation is composed of equipment shipped with DISH 500 systems until the end of February 2000. It utilizes 2 Dual LNBFs, 2 SW21 switches, and requires each LNBF to have one output routed to 1 switch. Each switch then has one output to a receiver, allowing that receiver to display programming transmitted from satellites at 119 and 110.

DISH 500 Twin Installation for two receivers.
Installation using a Twin LNBF allows programming from 2 satellite locations (119 and 110 only) and connection of up to 2 receivers as shown here. The Twin LNBF is the functional equivalent of 2 Dual LNBFs and 2 SW21 switches combined into a single LNBF. The benefit of the Twin LNBF is an installation that is typically quicker, easier and cleaner than using separate components. Be sure to use a grounding block as shown. Note, if peaking signal strength using the receiver’s signal strength meter, output port A or output port B can be used. If peaking signal strength using a powered meter, output A provides signal off 119, and output B provides signal off 110.

DISH 500 Twin and DISH 300 with Dual LNBF, and Two SW21s for a two receivers, 3 satellites location installation
This installation method provides programming from 3 satellite locations and supports up to two receivers. 2 SW21 switches are used to route the signals rather than the SW64 switch traditionally required to receive programming from 3 satellites. This setup shows a DISH 500 which “looks” at 119 and 110 satellite orbital locations and a second DISH 300 that “looks” at other locations such as 61.5. If connection of 3 to 4 receivers is required, a SW64 switch and two conventional dual LNBF’s must be used (not a twin LNBF). See “SW64, 3-satellite location” diagram in this case. Note: this installation method can only be used with EchoStar model 2700, 3700, 3800, 4700, and 6000 receivers and their JVC or Philips model equivalents. DishPlayer, Model 5000, and the JVC DSR-100 will be added to this list late 2nd quarter 2000.

Distribution with Two SW64s Using DC-Blocked Splitters and Three Feed-Through Loads for up to 8 receiver, 3 satellite location installation
Using this installation configuration, support for 2 or 3 satellite positions and up to 8 receivers is achieved. The following example illustrates satellite reception from 61.5, 110, and 119 servicing 8 receivers. Equipment required to perform this installation includes two SW 64 switches, six satellite grade 2 way splitters with one DC block output, and three “feed through loads” (these are NOT in line amplifiers). Conventional dual LNBF’s are required in this installation, do not use the Twin LNBF. Note: All splitters used in satellite TV setups must be rated for satellite reception and are typically labeled as being for “satellite” or specified 950MHz – 2150 MHz. Do not use TV splitters or those rated for 54MHz – 806 MHz. Professional installation of this configuration is recommended. Feed through loads will be available through DISH Network dealers late May 2000
