Hey guys, I'm new and have just ordered a receiver, satellite dish and a motor. I have a question, do I need a disEq switch to connect to the motor and the LNB so I will only use one cable line to the receiver? Or is there another way to connect to the LNB and the motor with just one cable? BTW, I did not order a disEq swith with my system.

You only need a switch if you have another LNB on your dish or an LNB on another dish.

You need a cable from the receiver to the motor then a cable from the motor to the LNB that is all.

See this switch thread/.
The LNB daisy chains through the motor, normally.

If you have an unusual LNB or motor, there may be considerations, but not likely.
