It is the same as the one use for DirecTV, I picked one up here (Boston) at You do it Electronics for $40. The salesman did not want to sell it to me because he was adamant that it will not work on anything other than DirecTV. When I insited that I am taking it anyway, he was positive that I was going to be back to return it. It has worked like a charm since I installed it. It is a 4 way switch and I have 3 receivers hooked up to it.
