What are you using for the C-band? An LNBF, ortho feedhorn with 2 LNBs, or a polarotor servo feedhorn?

A dual output LNBF such as a DMX242 connected to the H/V ports of a 4x8 powered multiswitch(WNC SWA48 or Eagle Aspen MS4x8WB) for the C-band dish. Connect a dual output Ku LNBF such as DMX522 to the 22kHz H/V ports.
Clock the C-band LNBF to 90*(3 or 9 o'clock position) for H to H. Both 922s connected to the multiswitch, only one as C-band dish positioner. 2 FTA STBs connected directly to the multiswitch for both C & Ku bands. One FTA STB to control the Ku dish with the motor LNB connection to the multiswitch.:)

Thanks for the reply,


sorry, I had not responded, super busy, I am using a orthomode setup up with mutiswitches, I have several open boxes connected, getting great signal,. My only issue is the two 922's setting the second one up so it is no longer trying to move to different location for the satellite positions. Is there a way to configure it with motor functions off or slave.

Thanks.

Ken

Options-6-4-1, select 'NO' to not "allow dish moving for updates."

Hope that helps.;)

Ken,

Yes there is. On the slave, just set all the dish positions the same (to the same number) on every satellite.

Cheers

hooking up more then one receiver
you will need a Fixed Feed with 2 C and 2 Ku band feeds No servo needed.TT
