Can an Openbox S10 or any other similar FTA box control 2 different dishes at the same time?

Ku with HH motor and a C band Actuator using a Gbox and DiSEqc 1.2?

I've been manually moving the C band but it would be nice if the Openbox could just control both dishes. :)

Coax routing: Receiver >> GBox >> motor >> Diseqc sw >> LNBF's. Should work unless the receiver has problems running diseqc (switch and Gbox) and usals (Motor) simultaneously. If I remember right, the S9 will do it. The S10, I would think, should also. Don't think you'll hurt anything by trying it.

Hmm... I have an odd setup because my Diseqc sw that combines the C band and Ku is located inside and not before the HH motor. Think that will cause any issues?

Well, your motor current hasn't fried your switch, so should be good. The Gbox doesn't use the LNB voltage as a typical usals motor does. (if your motor is modified to use external power, it wouldn't use the LNB voltage either.)
