Yes, or you can get two LNB's and a switch all in one called a monoblock.

ok so if i get a monoblock i need to get a multisat receiver right?

id prefer one where i can input the codes by remote as opposed to cam ands cards and all that. can you recommend a fairly cheap one?
i saw this one on ebay:- Interstar DSR 8005 2 CI
but im not sure if it is any good.
if i get a diseqc 2 monoblock does the receiver have to support diseqc 2?

Hi kebabinho
Several receivers which are patchable and come with CI slots come into the sub-£150 category. Technomate and Fortec Star to mention two.
Fortec Star 5100CI Ultra boxes appear on ebay regularly - might be worth checking out.

Yes, or a patch update. CI slots there if you want to exercise your mind with a bit of card progging later.

Yes, no problem. If you decide on the Fortec someone here should be able to help if you have any queries.
