I want to connect two dual lnbs to a 4 way disql switch then run one lead into my living room.
at present I have one dish with hotbird lnb setup.
i also have another dish pointed to nile sat.
I have two cables running to my receiver a MANHATTAN PLAZA 500,
i want to replace the two lnbs and fix two dual lnbs.
HOW CAN I FIX UP TWO DUAL LNBS HOTBIRD/ASTRA AND NILESAT + ANOTHER TO GO TO ONE 4 WAY DISQL SWITCH, THEN CONNECT USING ONE LEAD TO RECEIVER. I HAVE BEEN TOLD IT WILL NOT WORK BECAUSE THE RECEIVER WILL NOT RECOGNISE THE TWO LOTS OF DISQL SWITCHES.ON LNBS AND IN THE SWITH BOX CONNECTOR.
THIS IS FOR MY HOME IN CYPRUS,
Would appreciate your help, can it be done somehow.I am only a novice.

It **may** work if you put the monobloc lnb onto port A of the switch. If it doesnt then you will need a seperate LNB for 13E and 19E.
