    Living in a flat with a communal dish and having only one sky socket in the lounge I wondered if there was anyway of splitting the signal to the main box and to a box in the bedroom. Most of the time they will not be watched at the same time.

    In Maplin I have seen these things. Does any one know if the Satellite splitter will work as it supplies power to the LNB, which I do not have.

    Thanks

    The only way to receive different channels to two boxes is with either a dual or quad LNB. When you switch channels the box sends a voltage and tone signal to the LNB to tell it which polarity and band to switch to. Two boxes on the same single feed would be switching the LNB at the same time.Even with a stacker/destacker you still need two feeds from the dish.
