One ku band dish and 2 receivers.
I have a question for you all, I have a 1.2M dish that I use only For Ku band with a single universal LNB, it has a motor, i want to be able to connect it to 2 receivers and control it by either receiver. I don't want to add another coax cable and use a dual LNB at this time.
How can I set this up? I need some ideas.
Thanks in advance.

Different locations, I use a modulator and feed the 'channel' to many televisions. Use IR extenders to operate the receiver.
Different receivers, for different specifications, could use a 'diode isolated' splitter. power passes from either receiver to the motor/lnbf. But not from one receiver to the other.

A bandstacked LNBF will get you both polarities at the same time over a single cable through a high frequency splitter or receiver loop through. What receivers are you using?Current systems: 3X GEOSATpro microHD PVRs; Digitrans DTE-7150 DVB/Digicipher II; SiliconDust HDHomeRun ATSC/QAM networked tuners; fixed 1 meter Channel Master dish with Eagle Aspen P870 FSS stacked Ku LNB; 2X 3ABN 36" dishes with Sadoun KBSL1 stacked Ku LNBFs on Powermax SG-9120B H-H motors; fixed Sadoun SD180G 1.8 meter dish with Eagle Aspen B1SAT stacked C LNBF; Winegard Square Shooter OTA DTV antenna

I thank you for your response, this is what I have, I have a raptor receiver and a Azbox + receiver both of them have dual tuners, one for C. band, second tuner for KU band.
My KU dish I have a universal elite spitfire Lnb single output, 1.2 m motorized geosatpro dish, and like I stated on my initial comments I want to be able to connect this dish to each receiver second tuners and a control the dish from either receiver.
I am only going to be using one receiver at the time not both.
Thanks again for your suggestions.

Chewie1, I am sort of at a loss here on your question. By that I mean you have been a member for three years, you've posted 75 times or more, yet you are asking something that has been addressed many many MANY times before.
My first response would be to put up a second dish, problem solved. If space is a limitation, put both dishes on the same pole, difficult, but doable.
But I think the cheapest and almost best idea would be to put up a dual LNB where you can connect to two receivers, though that would leave you not quite "there" since control of the position of the dish would be limited (SHOULD BE LIMITED) to one receiver or the other.
Sorry if this isn't the answer you were looking for.

Feed your LNBF in from the dish to the In Port and then out of the OUT ports to each receiver.
