im thinking the 8x1's are configured 1 of two ways. using diseqc 1-4 with 22k on / off or by using diseqc 1.2 positions 1 thru 8. my memory is getting rusty tho.

Okay, a DreamBox 500 receiver, and which 8x switch do you have?
We have reviews of:
- DMSI 8X1 Diseqc Switch
- EMP Centauri 8 x 1
- Digiwave 8x1 uncomitted
... over in our Review Department.

Of the three, I wouldn't touch any but the Digiwave.
However, maybe the reviews will help you with whichever you have.

If that doesn't work out, here's an 8-input idea in our Switch FAQ.
Be sure to read the entire FAQ if you are unfamiliar with any of the info.
