    That is a Directv switch they use different frequencies and switching format than DISH uses.

    dish FW could use 22KHz switch as apart of the WB68, but it would serve only two sats - 119W and xxxW

    nope,
    if you'll find my old post how the flex ports controlling by DTV receivers, you will see it constantly send unique DiSEqC commands for the ports
