Hi!

Is it possible for two Digi boxes (Pace 2600 C1 x2) to share the feed from one dish or will this have an adverse affect on the signal quality? The idea is to have one receiver in the lounge and the other downstairs in my cinema room.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Martin

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

I notice you have a Quad LNB, if you have a spare output(s) on the LNB, just connect the extra box(es) and you should be ok... :)

As for sharing one cable, it can be done, but is not reccomended and can damage your recievers if not set up properly, and you'll ony be able to watch channels on the same band as the other box, so there;s little point...
