the dual LNB you probably refer to is a monoblock. two lnbs built into one. inside there is a built in switch which you receiver controls. if you want more than 2 lnbs in this fashion, you'll have to drop your monoblock in exchange for 3 separte lnbs and a diseqc switch (which can support upto 4 lnbs). or if your receiver has a 0/12v switching cabability you might be able to keep your monoblock and add a 0/12v switch with the monoblock on one side and third lnb on the other - i'm just guessing at that, if someone would back me up that would be my full answer. :-smallmam

thanks for that , yes my receiver has the 0/12 facility, what sort of lnbs do i need if i want to connect 2 receivers to the dish? where do you connect the switch?

If you want to feed two receivers, then you will need either three twin LNBs and two four way diseqC switches, or a twin output monobloc LNB and a twin LNB with 0/12v switch.
