    I have spent many hours researching the various switches for DirecTV. I would appreciate any recommendations or feedback before I purchase.

    I have standard dual-LNB DirecTV dish. I'm adding receivers so I need a total of 6 outputs.

    I've looked at the following switches (3x8):

    Channel Master 6228IFD
    Perfect Vision PVMS-8EP
    Eagle Aspen S-2180A-LX

    Is anyone familiar with the quality of these switches or manufacturers? Can you recommend one of these or perhaps some other brand?

    I have a Spaun 2X6 multi-switch:


    The part number is SMS 261F.

    It is available for $47 plus $5 shipping.

    Do you need a 3X8 or do you get locals via Directv? If you get locals via Directv, then a 2X6 will work fine.

    Here is a link to a Spaun 3X8 multi-switch if that is what you need:


    It is $69 plus $5 shipping.

    I had a Terk that I had to take back as it had a bad outgoing connector. It pissed me off as I had it mounted and everything.

    I have had good luck with Spaun switches (I've had two) so that is what I recommend. YMMV.
