I have the Zinwell WB68 that D* installed a few months ago for the 5LNB dish. Here's my question...

There are 2 "Flexport" ports on that box. Is that for an OTA antenna, so I don't have to go from a 4 way splitter to a combiner there, and then to a diplexer inside behind each of the 4 boxes?

Here's my current setup...


WB68 - w/5 LNB dish connected directly.
D* provided OTA antenna into 4 way splitter to combiners for boxes.

2 HR10-250's
1 D10
1 H20
1 D11

It would be so much easier if the WB68 were like my old Terk which had an OTA connection built-in!

Thanx in advance to all you techies!

You need to run an additional wire.

The WB68 switch flex ports are for additional satellite antennas, not OTA. Also, you cannot use combiner/diplexer with these switches and the KaBand.
