I have a monoblock which picks up hotbird and astra, with a single wire coming from it to my Interstar 8005CI box. this then sorts out which lnb to use for which channels.
i also have a sky dish which i want to use for FTA channels and the radio. can i connect both the cable to a DiseqC switch and have it automatically switch when i change channels.
i know you can do this with 1 lnb on each dish, but will the monoblock cause any problems?

If your receiver can handle secondary DiseqC commands, then all you need to do is add a two way switch before the monobloc, I think the commands would go: A+A, A+B, B (for Astra 28.2E)

It has to be, it can't be after.
