Hi I have Astra 1 - 2 and hotbird mounted on my raven dish . At the moment Astra 1 and hotbird are conected to my humax by a 2- 1 diseqc switch with Astra 2 on a seprate cable to my sky box. Would it be posible to have all three lnbs conected by a 4-1 diseqc switch going into the humax and the sky box being fed from the humax lnb loop through.

Hello T2

Yes it might be possible, but you would only get the LNB to which the Humax is connected at any one time fed through to the $ky Box.

If you want to be able to get the $ky Box fed permanently and receive the FTA from E28 via the Humax, you will need two LNBs pointed in that direction.

You could use a $ky+ type arrangement where a 'double' LNB is mounted on the one dish, and feed one output to your $ky Box, and the other via Diseqc to the Humax.

Kind regards
