Not that I know of.

I think you'd need two.  And you couldn't use one of those nice 
dual-tuner receivers they give to new customers, either, since the 
second tuner in those is controlled via RF, not IR.

I have to say, though, that when you get it up and running, to use the 
SVideo ports if you have them.  Dish's quality is awesome.
