if you have a dual LNBF you can use a 2x8 or 4x8 multiswitch (like what DirecTV uses)

you really couldnt use splitters unless they're all ont he same polarity

irrelevant. The multiswitch just passes whatever you are using.

I have a 2x4 for my 6 foot C-Band on G4/G16

2 inputs into it
4 receivers out

also have a 2x4 for my G10 dish...same thing

the thing is i'm trying to remap my 410's and i'm not getting anywhere,,,,i'm getting a green light on all 5 receivers, but the polarity says horizontal,,,it should be vertical right? i did a factory reset..put all the receivers on 204 with a green light and i called skyvision for a hit,, the programming rep said that the receivers were ready for remapping, i'm getting through with the guide, and i'm getting a green light on some channels but the thing is i'm getting starz comedy on where bbc should be ch 201...i'm also getting starz kids znd family on some other channel where it should not be,,on the receivers that i subscribed to a starz package, these are the only 2 channels from the package i'm getting,,and they're in the wrong place...on another receiver i'm getting W.E. where sundance should be...i'm wondering maybe i did something wrong...under menu 6778,,the fine tune settings are left auto, auto, 1170.000...what should i do..i thought this would have been a simple procedure but i was wrong,,,could anyone throw me a line..under the status screen there's a line that says emm providers -- 4096, 4160,2 ,,,, and emm provider -- 4160.

The multiswitch just chooses the port that matches the receiver's output voltage (polarity)
+18v horizontal / +13v Vertical.

The switch senses the voltage on the coax line from the receiver and connects it to the proper port.
