    Hi,

    I need to find a way to have two satellite feeds go down one cable as I cannot add another cable (there is simply no room for it unless I demolish the house and re-build it). I found this Global Stacker De-Stacker (DiSEqC enabled) | Satbuyer which from the description shows that it gets the job done. However, one of my LNBs is a SatCR and the other one is a regular LNBF. Will I be able to use the stacker/de-stacker to merge the two signals into one cable. The length of the cable is about 12-15 meters and I need the SatCR because one of my receivers has the ability to view/record two channels at once while the other cable (from the regular LNB) will go to a different receiver.

    Can someone help please?

    I stopped supplying stacker systems because I had a 50% return rate. The reason was that half of the people who bought them were buying because they were unable to replace the existing cable. It's a chicken & egg situation. You want a stacker system because you can't replace the old cable but unless you replace it the system won't work!

    So before spending any money, you need to ensure that the existing cable is suitable and you must NOT use a wall plate for the single connection.

    I haven't heard of "SatCR" so I can't tell you if it's compatible. Contact the manufacturer (Global-Invacom).

    Well I am not accustomed to the term SCR, but if it helps, where I come from it is also called a unicable LNB. Not sure if its the same?
