A friend of mine has a dual LNB to a 2x8 multi-switch on the 101 sat for Directv (I think that he is actually using all 8 outputs to TVs...VERY BIG HOUSE).


He purchased a HDTV projector, a Hughes E86 HDTV receiver and a complete Channel Master elliptical dish/multi-switch 4x2 model# 6902IFD-01 (the switch that only outputs to two IRDs).


My question is:

Can he hook up this new dish with the new switch, have it feed into his old multi-switch(using the existing cable) and still operate the tone activation between the 101 and 119 sats ?

There is already a similar thread here.

Diagram 1F sounds like what you want to do. Since it isn't recommended, I would guess that the 2x4 switch doesn't allow the switching tone to pass. I've also read over at DBS forums where it has worked. The most reliable way is to use a 4(or 5)x8 switch.
