Are there 4 lines coming down the dish or only one? The receiver will send a max of 18v up the line to the KAKU. I tired to keep this as simple as as I could.

This is becuase the PI is already passing power to the dish, therefore the colors of the splitter do not matter. I have seen numerous service call solved by simply plugging it directly into the wall. Becuase you are not passing power up from a room, to the splitter, then to the LNB. If you do, then all you need to do is connect that rooms line where the PI is to one of the red ports on the splitter, and the line from the LNB to the other red port. From the utility room they connect to a wall plate which has the various lines running to each room in the house. This is because the installer was too lazy to run 4 lines off your dish as required by DTV during installation.
