Example: If you have a 'IF' loop out on the motor box, you can run the $ky receiver from there and switch off motor receiver to s/by (send motor dish to 28e first) :D (2 receivers on 1 dish).

Other option is a diseqc switch . Two inputs on switch, 1 out to receiver. (1 receiver on 2 dishes).

Hope this had helped :D

To run 2 dishes on one receiver you need a DiSEqC switch.

With my setup I found it was necessary to place the switch AFTER the motor.

I.E Run the coax from the receiver to the motor, out of the motor to the switch ouput, then run the switch inputs to the LNBs.

The other possibility if you have a 12V Output on the receiver is to use a 12V coaxial relay, to connect between the motorised dish and the fixed dish. I belive the the Fortec Star receiver I had once, did have a 12V output.
