Had a Zinwell WB68 installed with my AT9 dish but I have outgrown it with the installation of DVRs. I'm currently using all 8 ports but need a total of 12. Is there a larger switch that's compatible with the AT9. I heard you can not cascade the Zinwell WB68.

Spaun is coming out with ciompatible 12x and 16x multiswitches, but I don't think they are available yet.
