The "DishPro Quad LNBF Installation Guide" (document #114548) shows (page 11) the Quad being used with single and cascaded DP34's. there's nothing in the text about using specific ports, but the diagram shows Ports 1 & 2 being used. I wouldn't bother risking a 'split-plane' problem by using Ports 2 & 3, or other variations other than 3 & 4 if you had to.erasmu said:Two different CSRs in the tech group of Dish told me that you can't run two lines from a quad (DishPro) to a DP34. They told me the quad must be replaced with twin. The lines of the twin go to a DP34 and then a second DP34 is cascaded for the extra lines. Has anyone actually run two lines from their quad to a DP34 and then successfully used more than four lines that way? The reason the techs gave me was that the quad had a built in switch that would not be compatible with the DP34. Obviously I have no great amount of trust in the CSRs, but two people told me the same thing and one of them asked me to hold while checking with a third person. If their info is wrong, I will have spent extra money for the switches and twin LNB.

Well I'm doing it for a Neighbor..
He has the SBC Deal..
1 Dual Tuner and 2 Single Tuners..
It's the 500 Series Dish (The One with the 2 Lnb's and 4 Outputs
As Dish Network uses Lh/Rh Circular Polarities and deliver a signal from both 110w and 119w..
Can someone tell me how I get L / R Circular signals from both satellites simultaneously..
You Need to use all 4 Outputs... 1 LH 110w 2 RH 110W 3 LH 119w 4 RH 119w ?..
If I am wrong please explain this to me..
Yeah - that's how it was before switches or DishPro. Check up on the SW64 - the Legacy version of the DP34. Each satellite needs 2 cables for just that reason.elbizarro said:... In europe you would need to separate all Signal Polarities L / R onto Separate Cables...
