Greetings,

I have had a DirecTV Dual LNB dish for about 10 years with a DirecTV/TiVO combo receiver using both LNB ports. However, I want to add two more Sony satellite receivers to my house now, but have an option for additional receiver hookups in the future. I am looking at replacing my current dish with a Gainmaster 75cm DirecTV Elliptical HDTV Antenna System with a 5x8 Eagle Aspen Satellite Multiswitch. So my new configuration will be (1) Directv/TiVO combo dual LNB receiver and (2) Sony DirecTV single LNB receivers running off of the Gainmaster 75cm DirecTV Elliptical HDTV Antenna. Do I need anything else to complete this project? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Also what makes the 5x8 Eagle Aspen Satellite Multiswitch (S-4180-GX+) different from the 4X8 Eagle Aspen Satellite Multiswitch (DTV4X8) beside the 5x8 Muliswitch having one additional input?

Thanks,
Chris

You will need the triple LNB dish for HDTV. I believe they make a Sat-C kit for existing dual LNB dishes though.
