Anyone who has measured the signal loss in a DiSEqC 1.0-switch or compared the pic quality percentage with and without the switch?
I'm planning a two dish system and I'm going to use one of the dishes for Astra 2d,so a loss of more than a couple of percent would be fatal for me.

Cheers

The insertion losses will vary between different switches, but will almost certainly be more than a couple of percent, more likely 5%.
