Not being too technically minded, I would appreciate some advice.
At the moment, I use 2 seperate receivers to watch 19e & 28e.
To enable me to use just the 1 receiver, is a simple AtoB switch the easiest way of doing this.
I don't really understand the ins and outs of DISEQC switching so I was looking at an idiot proof way of connecting the dishes.

Thanks in anticipation:-worship

An AB switch is manual. A 2 (or 4) way Diseqc switch will be operated by the receiver, provided the receiver has diseqc. The sats will need to be configured for diseqc 1.1 in the receiver, which is quite simple. :):

The receiver does have diseqc capabilities (sl65) but i'm afraid that loks a bit complicated for me.
As long as an AtoB switch will do the job, I think that will suffice for my simple needs.:)
