Switching between multiple antenna sources  

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been looking for a solution to remotely switch between 2 OTA antennas and Dish 5000 Modulator and came across this device:

It looks like it will do the trick and I can program it into my pronto for automatic selection of channels at the touch of 1 button.

For those of you who have OTA or multiple modulators, this should work well.

I use the A/B (two input, one output) switch between LNBs on my satellite dish and it doesn't degrade the signal one bit. If the four input version works the same, it should do a good job for you. At least the price is right!

I do have one. It is done with relays. But does have a problem with a "broadband" IR.... several of my other remotes activate it (even sunlight!) which causes it to "chatter" and give momentary signal dropouts or unexpectedly switch antenna inputs. The best workaround is: 1) keep it well away from other devices, [the Pronto does have a wide and strong IR transmitter] and 2) have it as the last thing in the Pronto macro [and always do the desired selection] as previous codes will often cause it to change selections.
