Is there any sort of switch like an A/B box which will act like a virtual motor or disecq, so i can plug 2 seperate dishes in it, and my dreambox will change to them without having to unplug coax or flick a switch on the AB box, like as if i had a real multisat system ?

I have a clone of this type, seems to work well. 4-way will give you the chance to add a 3rd dish on astra1 (19.2E), or you could just add an LNB off you hotbird dish. i've done this on a 60cm dish in south UK works well. check _http://www.satellites.co.uk/php-bin/forum/showthread.php?t=35396&highlight=cts+60cm
