Yea you should be ok as they arnt too far apart (set the dish on the weakest sat and you should be able to get them both to work.

ps you can get 1 lnb with a 6 degree twin feed horn designed for astra 19 and hotbird so if you have problems with the angles you could just go for the 1 lnb and its preset so once you get one sat the other shouldnt be too far away

You can use a "monoblock" type device (two LNBs in a single casing) or even simply two separate LNBs mounted using a special bracket (available in all sat shops). If you already have the two LNBs, this latter is the best (cheapest) solution.

19 & 13 degrees are by far the most popular sat positions in Europe (UK excepted) and many thousands of people have this dual setup.
