So let's see if I've got this right -- I can buy the DTiVo (18") and the WalMart RCA (18x24 with 2xdual LNB & 4x4 multiswitch) for $99 each then hook up the 18x24 + 4x4 to the DTiVo (2 tuners) in the living room and the RCA with the 18 in a bedroom -- for $50 less than the DTiVo with the 18x24. Wow.
That puts 2 dishes on my house, but that's worth $50. And sure, I won't TiVo in the bedroom, but if (well, when) I get another DTiVo box, I can get a bigger multiswitch.
The SA will be going back into its box to get shipped back very soon now....
It's even better than that. let's sit down and think it over:
From OrbitSat, you get a round dish and a D-Tivo.
From Wal-Mart, you get an oval dish and a RCA DTV receiver. The oval dish comes with the 4x4 multiswitch needed.
So, you put the oval dish up, and attach the D-Tivo to 2 of the slots and the RCA DTV reciever to one more (on the multiswitch). You sell the round dish for a bit of extra profit. Later, if you get another D-Tivo, you can get a bigger multiswitch (a 4x8 or a 5x8 for example).
No two dishes on the house needed.
