Need a little wiring help

Can I bring one coax from a Dish 500 pro lnb to a DP34 switch, and from the switch run to 3 seperate 301 receivers, only interested in receiving 110 and 119 programming or will I have to get a quad lnb. I already have the DP34, but would have to purchase the quad.

Thanks
Bob

So if I ran both wires from the dual lnb to the DP34 it will work ?, I was understanding that both 110 and 119 were on the same coax from the lnb, hope what I am trying to say makes sense.

Right, you'll need to run both wires to the switch. The lnb has an internal switch and that's why you can have both 119 and 110 on the same cable. But when connected to an external switch, the internal switch is disabled.

Are you sure that your LNB is a D Pro and not a D Pro Plus (has 3 coax connectors - 2 out & 1 in)? If it's a DP Plus you cannot use a DP34 switch. Just an FYI of course.... :)
