I need two separate dishes to see all three satellites due to tall trees; the new dish is the Terk S26 triple LNB, which will be seeing the two "new" satellites; my exisiting dual LNB dish will remain on. What sort of multiswitch do I need to get it all working, and where can I source one that's priced competitively?


TIA

You need a cascadable 4x or 5x if you add an antenna connection. The 5x8s most often mentioned here are the Terk BMS-58 and the Eagle Aspen S-4180-GX+. Use of the search engines below can probably locate something for under $80. Just make sure the specs for a DirecTV multiswitch say cascadable or 22KHz output and the multiswitch is a 4x or 5x with at least the number of outputs you need. Run the 2 leads from the round dish to the Sat A inputs and 2 leads from any 2 of the 4 connectors of the oval dish to the Sat B inputs of the multiswitch.
