It does not have a brand name on it but it looks identical to this one.

Amazon product.

My A-B switch has been installed since September 2007 and haven't had any trouble with it. I bought five of them at this place for super low price. I don't think they stock them anymore.

It's not supported and they say that over time it will fail but hey, if it's working, then go with it
Well, if it fails I have a spare one or change back over to two Solo Hubs. That is what the DISH technician installed with a jumper coax and then I changed it to the Duo Hub after he left. ;)

There have been a couple of other threads with successful 2 H3 installations using the DPH42 switch. You just cannot get it through either a Dish CSR or the DIRT team. There was a Presidents # ( 866-213-5814) that is hit or miss in getting approval to do this type of installation. Then you have to buy the 2nd H3. Dish will not lease it to you. Then you have to hope that you can find some one with sufficient knowledge to install it and maintain it. I wanted to get it done to solve the 4K Joey Netflix and PIP problems. Now that the 4K Netflix problem has gone away. I am not sure the cost and bother for PIP is worth it.
