Guys (and gals),

I haven't tried this before but is it possible to add a wing dish to a Dish 1000 by using a DP21 switch with the DP Plus Twin LNBF to get the following 4 satellites? Namely, the 110, 119 and 129 from the Dish1000 and 61.5 from a wing dish. Thanks a bunch!

I don't think so, the DPP Twin is only compatible with DPP Switches. However, I believe I read that it was also compatible with the DP34 provided you added a power inserter from a DPP44.

However, if you can feed a DPP44 and a DP Dual into a DP21, it seems like maybe you could. But then I would wonder if the power requirements of the DPP Twin would damage the DP21?

The moment you connect a switch to the DPP Twin, the satellite IN port is disabled. So, NO a DP21 won't allow you to get 4 satellites. You'll need the DPP44 switch.

Thanks, guys. I guess there's no shortcut to this one like with the DP21 and DP34 switch combo. Thank you for the quick responses. Much appreciated.
