Input signal splitter & multiswitch
Posted 09 February 2006 - 02:05 PM
I currently have a 18" Dual LNB with 2x4 (or 3x4 including antenna feed). I used up all 4 outputs with 2 IRDs and 1 Tivo. I would like to add another IRD and a friend of mine gave me an old 2x4 switch. I know I can't split the output feed to the IRD. The question is :
Can I use a sat splitter and split the input feed from the dual LNB to feed to BOTH 2x4 multiswitches, since 2x4 locks odd and even on its 2 inputs. This is NOT cascading, because both 2x4 multiswitches would receive the same splitted signal simutaneously.

Yes it does work.
I have also seen where people have successfully ran 2 lines from the existing multiswitch to the new multiswitch and then had enough connections for a total of 6 receivers or 3 DVR's. Do not know if this works though for I have never tried it I have just seen where supposdly other have successfully done this.
