Yep, go and buy a Diseqc Switch (either 2-way or 4-way) ad they are very cheap too; should be about US$10.

Thank you

I asked this solution to many hard ware shop in himachal, those who deal with cable equipment But they says its not possible to connect two different KU band satellite dish with one Set top Box.
Ok, now i will ask for "Diseqc Switch" next time. may be this is the solution which i was looking for till now.
I am staying little far from town, once i got there definately i will ask for "Diseqc Switch" and i will let you know all.
