im buying another STB and that would make it a total of 3 stb's. i was wondering if i can use a multiswitch and to take out all the disq switches. right now i have dish 500 with 4 outputs (2 for 119) and (2 for 110) 2 disq switches.
Are you running two dual LNB's??? What type of LNB's are you running with your Dish500???
There is a couple of ways to do this, but if you have a dish500 all you need to do is get a DishPro Quad LNB and run three lines directly into your STB. This LNB has a built in switch and all you need to do is configure you antena as follows: LNB Type: DishPro or OSC-DP DISEcQ: 119 = 1 110 = 2
Boki if you are using a DishPro Quad then you should NOT be using any DISEcQ switches. This LNB has a built in switch. You'll need to run a third line. Even if you hook up a DP34 you will still need to run a third line from the DP34 to the STB so why not just run it straight to the LNB. You have 4 outputs/outlets available in a DishPro Quad LNB...
NO! The LNB has a built in switch Each line carries both signals 110 & 119. With this LNB you just run the line straight into your receiver - ONE line, One Receiver. The Line is connected to an internal switch in the LNB and you set up up as I stated above.
