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

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.
