I have now got 2 co-ax leads coming into my room, is their any sort of switch box thing i can use to change them easily, as i cant be bothered to keep unscrewing and screwing them in again when i wanna change what dish im using.

Yes, You need an A/B Switch. You can get one from Maplins.

That's the chappie. Be aware that there is a slight dB loss but nothing to worry unless your signal is borderline.

Even less effort but more cost. If your receiver is Disecq compatible you can buy a simple 2 LNB Disecq switch.

As a further alternative, and thinking ahead, buy a 4 port Diseqc switch and switch between 4 LNBs - when you get around to putting the extra 2 up that is.
