    Hi...
    I have a dish with dual LNB pointed at Galaxy25 (97W).
    Each line feed from a LNB is used by an FTA receiver ( a Viewsat and a Coolsat ).
    Is it possible to add a third receiver into this setup such that all receivers get signal from Galaxy 25?
    Thanks.

    Why not just use the loop out connector as both of your receivers probably should have one, that what I use on some of my receivers setup up for 99W.

    Use a 2X4 multi switch.
    It will be good to feed up to 4 receivers, but your lnbf has to be a standard as far as I know.

    Get one like this one.http://satelliteav.com/p/shop/?ws_pid=1347&ws_cat=429

    I just did a multiroom setup with one of those switches from the same seller. I did not have any problems with it.

    Have any more questions, just ask us.

    Could you give us the data that is printed on the LNBF, that would help.

    Thanks for the answers.
    Yes it is a standard LNBF, so I will be looking for a 2x4 switch on ebay.
    Not many listings on ebay, most are Zinwell 3x4 switches, hope they are good.

    Go for this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ECODA-22KHz...lite_Signal_Multiswitches&hash=item20be2e7b54

    Leave yourself some room for input expansion of another dual lnb if needed in the future. That's one of the best switches out there for the money, and shipping is free if you buy it from Brian's Ebay store.
