hey guys. i have a question.

i want to install a dpp dual tuner receiver using a dp34 switch without running two sets of coaxs into the receiver from the switch.
i know that the dpp separator does not work.

however, i found another switch, it is just a dp 2-way splitter.
with a lnb input and two receiver outputs. can i just use this switch in place of the dpp separator?

thanks.
here is a picture.

no a DP21 will not work you need a DPP LNB or switch to use a single cable on a dual tuner receiver. DP34 is not DPP capable.

that is actually not a dp21.
a dp21 goes from 2 sattelite feeds to one receiver
this splitter goes from one sattelite feed (dp34 switch with 3 feeds) to two receivers. thats why im asking, i know a dp21 wont work.

No, the ONLY way to use one coax to a dual tuner receiver is to feed it's DPP seperator from a DPP switch or DPP LNB. That splitter is for feeding two switches or receivers from a single DP LNB, a very unusual situation.

Probably easiest to change the lnb to DPP. How many and what receivers? What Dish currently? Built-in switches are better, IMO.

Or if you want instant results and it is accessable, run two lines from your DP34 to your receiver and it will work just fine. DPP just allows both signals on one line instead of 2.
