I got a DSR922 that moves my 7 1/2 foot dish. I want to hook up this Coolsat 5000. I have seen some diagrams on DMSI site. They split the signal with a 2.3 ghz splitter. The diagrams show a C and a KU coax. I dont have a Ku coax. Could I just split the C-band cable to the Coolsat and receive
C-band only?

Thanks

yes you can

you wouldn't need KU or the diseqc switch

do you have a separate KU dish setup?

you could always tie those other dishes into the Coolsat too ;)
(if they have dual LNB's on them)

I suppose the power pass would go from the DSR922 to the BUD? Sadoun used to have this on their website, but I can't find it now.

Thanks

I have a similar setup using a Perfect Vision splitter and checked for signal attenuation issues, but didnt find any. I have another I intend to split again to my Zeinith 2500 for analog stuff since it is actually better that my 922 for that, but it hasnt made it to the 1st page of the 'want to do' list. I dont know how far a signal can be split this way before attenuation becomes an issue, but I will report my findings when I get around to digging into the entertainment center again.
..............that is if I dont get strangled or tangled and starve to death.....lol

I'm sorry. I'm still a little confused. I have the coax with the splitter hooked up. Now how do I come off the Coolsat back to the TV? I have a OTA antenna hooked up and the 922 is connected using RCA jacks.

Thanks
