Hi All

I have just purchased a JAEGER SUPERJACK DG-120 DISEQC MOTOR to go with my:

SkyStar2 PCI DVB
BigSat 8000 Deluxe
80cm Dish
0.6db LNB

Now i have 2 recievers i wish to connect, obviously only one can control the motor, but how do i connect them all together. cant really use the loop through as the recievers are in different rooms.

So do i need a twin lnb and run a 2nd cable or can i split the signal elsewhere?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

As the loopthrough is a single cable, running between rooms should not be impossible, but it is probably better to drive the dish with just one receiver and have a twin LNB on the dish

great, thats what i'll do then. easiest solution also...

Cheapest i can find on ebay is a Big SAT 0.3dB Twin LNB for £23.50 +£4.50 p&p, is this as cheap as they come?

cheers
