I thought a 2x4 multi (or 3x4 with diplexer built in to switch) was limit, but then again I do remember more outs on some switches, you are just running two lines from a dual LNB in. Eagle Aspen makes good switches, but any 22 tone switching switch should work. All switches except the whatky DirecTV SatC switch and all Dish switches are pretty standard and pretty cheap.

There is a setup under the hidden setup menu to tell the boxes they are in a switched configuration.

I have had good luck with eagle aspen myself.Also good luck with perfect vision.Switches are pretty cheap these days.I include them on all of my multi-room dtv sales.just make sure it is installed out of the weather.

You should never pay more than 50.00 bucks for a 4 way.Eightway switches sell for around $100.00.If they price gouge you just e-mail me...I'll sell you one for $30.00 including shipping!!!
