im looking to get a twin output lnb so conect my technomate downstairs and use skystar2 up stairs i tried using the loop out but cant watch vertical tp on one and horizontal on the other so need to know if it posible to do this with a twin lnb output
also if i use a twin lnb output will i beable to move the motor with both receivers as one receiver would conect to motor then to lnb and the other receiver would go straight to the lnb
any help would be greatfull as been meaning to set a box downstairs for parents for ages now instead of using crapy video sender

Hi

Yes a twin LNB would let you use both vertical and horizontal systems.

Twin LNB is just like having two and signal control is independant

I would think that you will only be able to control the motor from one box, this is what you want right

I see one person being annoyed, watching something and bam no signal - with the other box turning the dish around lolz

The eternal problem. The motor can only really be driven from one source at a time. Only way to get around that is with some switching on the input, and not DiSEqC either!

Either 12V or manual.
