2 Receivers off of 1 Line?

This is a bit of a simplistic explanation, but the cable that runs between the receiver and a dish is a two-way communications line. Not only does it receive the signal from the dish, but the receiver also sends a signal back to the switch on the satellite dish telling it which satellite to point at and which polarity. A splitter simply will not work.
Check out my list of links.

What exact dish do you have , a Phase III or do you have one of the slightly older models that uses the SAT C kit?

Just one phrase in subject: "Don't use splitter !"
