Wrong, the input to the switch selects polarity from the receiver.
No. think about it. If you put 18V to both ports on the LNBF all you get is horizontal channels. No vertical.

Fearless, would realy like you to explain how I watch both C-band and Ku-band on a single cable with both polarity's then.

That's what I like about this place, everybody is so sure of what they are saying. I'm out

You might think you do, but you are WRONG. You need to spend some time reading the multi switch posts here and see how they work.

Amazon product Here is a switch, if you zoom in on it you can see the sat in is 13 or 18 volts, I run real LNB's so all I need is the switch to know what polarity I want and bingo, it is there.

I never once disputed that fact, but you can't stop taking about your stuff long enough to think about what the OP is doing. And you really don't know anything about C2PLL LNBFs obviously.

I have forgotten more satellite stuff than you have ever known. I am starting to assemble a 12 foot Paraclipse next weekend to use. And guess what ? It will get one of my many Titanium LNBF's on it for aligning,

Actually the C2PLL LNBF will not work with a switch modded to power LNBs. You have to have 13V from the vertical port and 18V+ from the horizontal for an LNBF to work.
Correct. A modded switch outputs fixed 20vdc to both ports. A C2-PLL would only receive horizontal polarization when used with the LNB mod. switch.

True and I was wrong because that is not what the OP was asking about, no were did he mention a universal LNBF. I simply added that I use a modded switch for my C and Ku ortho feeds to give them full power.

Sorry, don't understand why you are bringing up universal LNBF? One more confusing thing added to a thread that was simply asking how to feed a dual output, voltage switching LNBF to feed multiple STBs. This thread is a big steaming mess of contradictions over nothing...

Use a standard (not modified) multi-switch with a dual output, voltage switching LNBF. Connect the 13Vdc port of the multi-switch to one LNBF port output and the 18Vdc port to the second LNBF port output. Each STB will be connected to the multi-switch output. I recommend using a powered multi-switch to minimize switching errors.

It is incorrect to state that a modded switch that is used with your orthomode configuration (outputs 20Vdc on both LNB ports) will provide vertical and horizontal polarity reception with a LNBF like the C2-PLL. The 20Vdc output on the LNB ports of a modded switch will lock both of the C2PLL ports to horizontal polarity. Fearless Freep is correct.

Looks like I missed the jerk store sale... I didn't get any notification of this. Lots of smugness and stubbornness, akin to a pen of donkeys smoking from tobacco pipes, if you catch my drift. Ironically, he was wrong about the modded switch compatibility with the LNBF.
