I have a dish500 with legacy quad LNB. And dish300 pointing at 61.5 with dual LNB.

I need to connect to 3 receivers. Which switch do I need?
Is there any installation diagrams for this setup?

Thanks for your help,
-Mark

Thank you boba. I did check that website. It says that I need a "Standard 2 in 4 out Multi-Switch" which I could not find any where.

Maybe I was searching for the wrong description.

Anybody knows what this thing is, and maybe, where to get it?

I really appreciate your help.

My VOOM dish has one line running from it. Is there any way to make use of this one line for VOOM and Dish. Can I split the VOOM line , send one to VOOM and the other to a dish switch???

no
you would need another line from the LNB to the switch

Mark, you need the SW-64 switch for four outputs and three sat. You will also need to change your QUAD LNB to two duals LNBs. A cheaper route would be to get two SW-21 switches. I think you can use them with the QUAD LNB, but you won't be able to see the side sat on one of your receivers. Check the Legacy section on that switchinfo website.

Markusian a standard 2 X 4 or 3 X 4 directv multiswitch on the 61.5 dual LNB will give you connections to connect three receivers to that dish. you will also need three DISH SW-21 switches. 1 output from the multiswitch goes into each SW-21 1 output from the Legacy Quad goes into the other leg of the SW-21 it is called cascading the satellites.

I have one dish (a 10 foot pariot) and one dual lnb and im using two receivers. The dish alternates between 61.5, 110 and 119. It only picks up one satellite at a time. I get odd and even transponders on 110 and 61.5 but I dont get the even ones on 119. What kind of switch do I need for this setup?
