I am remodeling and trying to make sure I don't drywall myself into a problem. I have a Genie with a total of 3 TVs. I was under the impression that I absolutely needed to wire home runs for each TV back to the dish but that seems like a lot of cable routing for no reason. Is there a way to create a central termination point, in a closet for example, where all TVs get connected to and then send a COAX out to the dish from there?
Having a central point where all cable runs end is the most common method. If you have less than 8 tuners, you can have only one cable run to the dish. More than 8 tuners, you'll need 4 cables to the dish. Genie has 5 tuners, HR2x DVRs have 2, H2x receivers have 1 and Genie clients use one of the Genie's tuners.
