As a general rule, if the satellite installer used RG6 coax you should be able to reuse it.

I would examine what you have. Hopefully you have the initial run of coax that came inside off the dish into some sort of splitter. Then split the 4 ways to different TVs. Get rid of all the satellite splitters. Install your channel master distribution amp in its place. Only keep the coax. You should be fine. If there is any question, talk to your installer about this.

Don't reuse the J-pole mount for the sat dish either. Since you are going to be using a DB8 and a HBU11. You need a chimney mount or tripod mount on your roof. Make sure the installer mounts the antennas 4' apart if possible.Mounting supplies:
