In preparation of moving house, I decided to splurge out £4.95 on a cheap 4-port DiSEqC 2.0 switch for my dishes, and I can't wait to get my dishes working with it... :D

I'm sure that there is DiSEqC 2.0 for switches and stuff and the others for motors...

I'd like to have a nice big dish, but for now I have my several dishes to play with... :D

It's just a DiSEqC switch, not a distribution switch... :p

Diseqc2 switches allow communication both ways, but are compatible with diseqc1-3 protocols.
