Hey Guys,

A friend of mine has a Bell TV setup at his home. At the dish, he has a DisPro Plus LNB, and two cables that run to his home. I removed the lnb, and it looks like three connectors come out of it. In my head, I was expect 4, and figured this would be more like and LNB with built in SW44 capabilities.

Anyhow, he has two receivers in the home, one cable goes to his 9242 I think, and he has a DP Seperator, so he can use the dual Tuner. The other cable run goes directly to a 2700 (which I told him to swap out for at least a 3100)

But he wants to add another receiver in the home. How would he do this? Can it be done by using a separator like he did for the dual tuner? and send them to individual receivers?

The legacy stuff was so much easier :)

The 3rd port on the DPPTwin is an input for another satellite (obviously used with Dish). There is a switch built in

Well....lets see. Only way I can think to do it is a DPP33 or DPP44+ switch. Both will allow you to still use the separator for the 9242. The separator only works on dual tuner units. You cant use the separator and run 2 single tuner units with it

The second option is to go with a second dish set up with a SW44, leaving the original dish with the DPP22 LNB. This allows you to stay with the ability to run dual tuner receivers with a single line, as well as running more than 2 receivers in your home.

Thanks Iceberg, I will look into this more.
