1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

But I suggest you do it properly by buying a twin (two outputs) or quad (four outputs) lnb, you will have to check if the mountings are compatible with the existing lnb though;)

Yes, but the second receiver will only be able to watch the satellite which the main receiver sends the dish to.

Yes, but only one STB must be used to control the dish.

instead of connecting both STBs to dish, connect one STB to dish & take output from that STB for next STB

That will restrict the slave receiver's choice of channels to whatever the main STB has switched the LNB's polarisation to (either horizontal or vertical).

If i connect One output to two receivers by splitting up, The signal is dropping, I want to use one receiver at a time. Sol for this.

A/B switch. (Some loss there though). Make sure you only use one STB for dish control if dish is motorised.
