I currently have one of my Visionsats slaved to the other, and the master is connected to a 4 x 1 DiSEqC switch. Both receivers perform correctly, regardless of whether or not the master is on or in standby. I'm using a bandstacked C-Band LNBF on NASA, so polarity is not an issue.
Ok if it's in standby it's bypassing the master, but on it feeds the current master LNBF/Diseqc settings to the slave.
On the subject of loop outs -
I would like to try it so the wife can also get Olympic coverage on her TV.
I am motorized but won't be moving anything until after they are done.
So do I go from dish to Visionsat (her TV), then loop out to the MercII (my TV, also the motor controller) and if I have read correctly in other threads, we should be able to watch channels of the same polarity on both sets? I'd loop out of the MercII, but hers is closer to dish.
And if I decide to leave things hooked this way, will I be able to control the motor from the MercII going through the Visionsat?
