Has anyone used an attenuator with DisEQC switch?

    In my setup, I have 3 LNBs feeding into a DisEQC switch. The setup works almost fine. I can switch from SAT A to SAT B or SAT C. I can also switch from SAT B to SAT A or SAT C. However, once I am on SAT C, switching does not work anymore. I just get locked into SAT C.

    Someone suggested to me that the LNB on SAT C is drawing lot of power. Hence, the DisEQC is not able to switch. This person also suggested that I insert a 10 Db Attenuator between the LNB and the DisEQC switch.

    I am wondering if anyone had a similar problem and was solved using the attenuator.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    The person is just ... a person; his advise is wrong.
    Not sure if you could make some soldering works in that switch, so just buy new one - it's cheap.

    I had a similar problem like that once. My answer was to swap the faulty LNB. :D
