I think that if you want all 3 LNBs to be available to both receivers then you are are looking at a quite complex problem.

You could use an A/B switch but would need 3 for each LNB and then remember to switch all 3 at the same time.

Alternatively if you are already using a Disecq switch to select the LNBs then you could put a single A/B switch to the receivers. I would assume that when you then choose a satellite, by changinging channel, the reciever would then send the required command to the Diseqc switch.

It all sounds like a lot of trouble!
