Could you give us more details of your setup. How many LBNs? How many cable from dish? how many input on the 2khz splitters? etc? http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif
Okay I have a round dish (not DirecTV plus) with a dual lnb, but only one of the lnb's are being used. One cable comes from the dish into my family room. I used a 2 GHz splitter from Monster (I've even used a cheap $4 2GHz splitter with similair results), to split the satellite into two. During the setup phase (I can't remember on which screen) there is an advanced button. It asks about an "autoswitch", I selected this option, it does some automatic configuration and then informs me that it found satellite 101 on 12V (or 14V?) and 101 on 18V. I'm not sure what all this means...but it seems to work.
It appears that while all the guide data is being fetched right after the initial setup, both video inputs don't work consistently. But after the guide data is done, I don't see any problems...I can record two shows at once no problems. Now I don't actually know that downloading guide data actually causes a problem, it might just be coincidental.
I hope this helps, I'd be interested to hear anyone elses results with something like this. This 2GHz splitters are designed with this purpose in mind. But I'm not an expert, so who knows.
