Can any one advice me on how to attach 5 LNB's to one receiver Currently I am using 4 lnb's with a 4 way disq switch

1) Nile sat ku band
2) Hotbird Ku band
3) Asiasat 3s C band
4) Panamsat 7 & 10 C Band

Now I plan to add a 5th lnb on panamsat 7 & 10 on KU band .

Any advice ?
Thanks

Disqc switches will only go up to 4 inputs & your receiver won't allow you to program more, unless you buy a switch which "emulates" a motor drive in which case you set up your receiver for a motor drive with many satellite positions.
A "work-around" is to use a 12v external lnb switch which you can buy quite cheaply and program your receiver to "12v on" for the 5th satellite. This works for my Humax. The 12V switch goes detween the receiver & the disqc switch. -It may even be possible to have a second 4 way disqc switch & use the 12V switch to switch between the two effectively giving you 8 inputs but I've not tried that yet.

Hope this helps
