The satellite receiver is kinda like a phone....it has to "call" the LNBF to make the connection. Using a splitter is like an old-fashioned "party line", and it gets the same thing as the other receiver on that line.
Here, though, we are talking about the individual satellites, and their left-hand or right-hand polarizations.
An A/B switch might work, but could likely short out the receivers' switching voltages, damaging the receiver.
