I'd never found my universal (when I had one) to be that bad, signal quality-wise. The main reason I stopped using a universal LNBF was because they limit your switching options. Since they use a built-in 22k switch, which is always '22k on' when you're watching the vast majority of North American satellites, they remove the option of using an external 22k switch to expand the number of dishes/LNBs you can connect to your system.
I called sadoun and they said that I can use any switch with their Universal LNB.
Are you sure all Universals limit you from using an external switch?
Tron is quite right. Your choices are very much limited.Tron said:....they remove the option of using an external 22k switch to expand the number of dishes/LNBs you can connect to your system.
Okay for some reason my dad's receiver only liked the signal from one of the lnb outputs. The other receiver accepted the output that my dad's receiver did not accept. Both are working though!! Hopefully no one asks for a THIRD receiver to be setup. Then I'll have to deal with all that universal LNB switching non sense.... or buy another lnb Thanks guys! I will return to this thread when I am ready to drive a grounding rod into the earth.
