I am asking for a fellow satellite hobbyist. He has a 12ft Unimesh and has full arc view. An ASC-1 connected in the coax line moves his dish and controls the skew. But he wants to find a way to have 6 receivers connected to C and Ku band. He is ok with one receiver being the only one able to move the dish.

Any ideas? Only thing I could think up was using a 4x8 or something similar to connect the receivers and set them all to 18V. Each receiver could have a separate channel list for each polarity so he would know when to change skew with the ASC-1? Not a simple process...

The simple way is to use ortho feeds instead of the corotor.

If one could only watch one polarity on c-band and one polarity on KU at the same time, why so complex request with the multiple receivers? What is the purpose, other than having a stack of receivers instead of using a single dual tuner receiver?

Dual C-band LNBF and milti-switch. Each receiver would see both polarities, any time.

He'd lose his circular signals. His 12ft is in New England. Receives 3W-133W. Dish is up high.
