I have a single dish with 3 lnbs, with only one incoming cable, with a single hdtv dual tuner receiver. I would like to add a second reciever, i have been told i need a separater, a diplexer, a splitter, all from different folks at dish, i just want to feed the input from a single dish to two recievers. Any help is greatly appreciated ...

A second dual-tuner receiver should come with a separator, so you got that covered. What you really need, and what wasn't mentioned by all those other folks, is a separate coax all the way from your 3-lnb dish w/integrated switch to your new receiver.

Is there no way to "split" the signal from a single coax?

Sorry, no. The good news is that with your dish (a 1000.2?), you can drive 3 dual-tuner receivers via 3 cables.

If you were looking at only one satrllite it might be possible to split a signal. You are looking at 3 satellites so switching from more than 1 receiver becomes complicated. The simple cure is run 1 cable for each receiver you want connected to the dish.
