2 Satellites to 2 Receivers

What is the best way to receive 2 satellites using one dish and watch them on two receivers?
My idea is to use an lnb holder to hold two twin LNBs for each satellite, And implement the setup in the attached picture. Is there a better and cheaper way to do this?

Assuming the receivers are single tuner, and therefore you are happy to record/watch from one sat at a time then yes that's the way to do it.

Well, if you are actually in North America and are wanting 110 & 119, then all you need is a DPP Twin LNBF and a Dish 500.

Then run 1 line from each port of the LNBF to your receivers.

If they are dual Tuner Dishnetwork receivers, then adding a DPP Seperator behind each receiver will provide a feed for each tuner.

If they are Dual Tuner FTA box's, then I doubt the seperators will work.

The picture is just an example. What I want to do is receive both Nilesat 7W and Hotbird 13E?
Both receivers are single tuner.

The principle is fine although you only need 2 x 2-1 diseqc switches unless you think you might want more satellites in the future.

In Egypt, Nilesat is OK on a small dish [c. 60cm] but Hotbird needs much larger, how large is one to find out with local info' before deciding on the dish- it could be anywhere between 1m to over 3m - Eutelsat claim 1.5m to 1.9m in the east of Egypt going off their published footprints, but they can be out quite a lot. The dish should be aligned to 13e & just try 7w in offset or put 7w on it's own 60cm dish.
