Looking for a Combiner

I am looking for the make and model of a "Combiner" that would allow me to combine the two feeds from my dish onto a single coax and then separate it at the receiver end.

I only have one cable going to my receiver and it would be difficult to run a second cable.

Thank you very much.

It depends on the receiver, dish, LNB and switch set-up as to how many wires you need to go to the receiver. What model receiver, dish and LNB do you have?

I actually have a shaw direct dish that requires two cables to go from the LNB to the dual tuner receiver. But I only have one cable.

Which dual tuner receiver? There is a thing called a separator. But I’m now confused. Are you doing this with Dish Network?

Shaw does not use Echostar equipment like Bell Expressvu does, so I have no idea if you can combine your wires on a Shaw system. Maybe you should look for a Shaw forum. Good luck. :)

There is a thing called a stacker and destacker.

The ones I have seen are for a KU band LNB for Directv for example.

I’m not sure what frequencies Shaw uses that would make this work.

I’m thinking the Shaw dish may work like the old prime star dishes where the even and odd polarities required separate cables from the receiver.

Shaw does use FSS satellites (Anik F1R, F2, and G1) they are linear polarized rather than circular like the BSS birds. I am not sure if the linear polarization can come down one cable. They are just like Primestar, as you mentioned that used the old Satcom K2 and later GE2 Ku-band. Anyone remember SkyVista that Dish ran for a while on the old Telstar 5 I think it was. Seems like it was part of the left overs of the old AlphaStar service.
