Hello
Please can someone advise me
I have 1 satellite dish at the moment and have 2 HUMAX FoxSat-HD Freesat HD Recorder - 500GB
I`m running the 2 from the 1 dish I think it has a quad LNB ?
I want to run a 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] HUMAX FoxSat-HD Freesat HD Recorder - 500GB
But I have no more feeds from the satellite dish
Can I buy a bigger LNB ?
If so will I be able to run the 3 freesat boxes from the one dish?
Thank you Paul

Welcome to the forum Paul, is this a Sky minidish?

You can buy Octo LNBs for Sky minidishes and for standard dishes. _http://www.satelliteandaerialsupplies.com/search/?s=octo

Another option is to get a distribution switch with 4 in an 8 out. This will support 4 boxes, and depending on existing wiring you may make new wiring slightly easier. Many mfgs, but for example EMP Centauri makes one that has 4 in + terrestrial, and distributes on 8 out. It works with quad lnbs, so you can reuse what you have on the dish already.
