Hi Gang. First post here and it's a doozy. Let me know if I am in the wrong place! Here's my setup.

1. I have several Multi-Switches going to up to a power inserter (which supplies power to my Dishes LNB's) and from there on up to my dish.

Question:

1. What type of splitter do I use fo combine the outputs of all these switches together going INTO the power inserter. Do you use power passing all ports, power passing one port, or power passing passive? I seem to be getting conflicting info on this. Any help appreciated.

If I understand your question right you need a - 2 gig 2 way splitter that has power passing on one side and passive on the other.

So I assume a 4-way splitter would be the same setup? One leg power passing and three passive? Why, if you don't mind me asking, is there only power passing on one leg?
