I'm not too sure about using the usb versions..  I found some more info

It looks like it might solve the stability issue.  From what I've seen

The key results seem to be that you can most likely control two dish

piece, that is a little expensive though.  It also seems like people are
having some success controlling a couple receivers with one, but I
haven't studied the details yet..
