I saw this on ebay. Would this work for 4 sats??

3087171772 is the item number. Thanks for the input
It looks to me like it would, but only for one receiver. You would have to make sure that you had all DishPro equipment (i.e LNBs and capable receivers). You would need to buy an additional one of these switches for each box you wanted to add. It also says you can use it with a twin LNB. That may be true but I would be suspicious of that claim. Keep in mind though that I don't know much about what DishPro gear is capable of so perhaps someone else can clarify that point.

The DP44, when it is available, is supposed to allow four sats in to four separate outputs. Sounds like a better deal to me, especially if you are thinking of adding more equipment to your setup in the future.
DP44 would be especially important for those that may be considering dual tuner receivers in the future. The DP splitter will allow you to split the signal for just the dual tuner receivers though but you would have to have one for each dual tuner receiver and from what I have heard it is not going to be cheap either.

Switch for Dish 500 and 921

Official 921 non-update update
