No, you can't do that. The separator can only be used with a dual tuner receiver.

I doubt there will be any real difference if they are to be used for 91 & 82 reception, they might just be different manufacturers part numbers.

I also doubt there will be any appreciable speed difference when switching channels on Bell TV.

If they are BOTH DPP44's then they must meet a spec somewhere, so treat them as identical would be my suggestion.

I will have to look at my DPP44's see what odel they are. They are just DPP44's to me.

Edit;

Using Google 142350 looks as though the casing is painted Gray, whilst 121252 is chrome.

The DPP44 is used on DP & DPP LNBF's.
They are used by Dish Network.
They are NOT used by Bell TV, they are NOT approved or supported.
I see no difference between them except the finish.
I have no idea which is newer.
DPP LNBF's are newer than DP LNBF's.

And by not supported he means by Bell TV, Bell TV tech support, Bell TV installers etc. The firmware on the receivers do support dp and dpp so they work with bell receivers.

I had a hard time to get a 2700 working with my DPP44 last week (had to run checkswitch multiple times to get both sats), although the 2700 worked flawless with a dp legacy adapter and a dp34.

121252 is the older version, chrome painted.
142350 is the newer version, grey painted. It is known as the ground block version.

That will work just fine.

No specific order should be required.

DPP or DP twin

I want to install a DPP44 switch so each of the 4 outputs can feed either dual-tuner receiver (with separator) or a single tuner for Bell 82/91.

Should I use a DPP (DishProPlus) twin or DP (DishPro) twin LNB? Pros/cons ?

Despite reading the threads I am confused as to what added bonus the DPP "Plus" adds with the DPP44 switch.

You need to use the DPP switch because the DPP seperator wil not work with just a DP switch.

As for LNBs, if you are going to buy single LNB heads, there is no such thing as a DPP dual LNB only DP dual LNBs, but they will work just fine as long as they are going into a DPP44 switch. If you are going to buy a twin LNB head you can buy either a DP Twin or a DPP Twin as they both will work going into a DPP44 switch.

So in a quick summary you must have a DPP44 switch, but you can use any type of DP or DPP LNBs that are available as long as they are going to your DPP44 switch.

Actually you are wrong, there are DPP Twin LNB's, I have one on my dish and if I did not have the DPP44 switch I could run one cable to two dual tuner PVRS and use the DPP separator.

I would read QCK's post again, Altaman, he never says there is no such animal as a DPP Twin LNBF....... He does say there is no such thing as a DPP Dual, which is correct.

Yep, Altaman read it again my friend. I made sure my configuration & terminology were correct when I made that post, and I do actually state that he could buy a DP Twin or a DPP Twin where you are saying I am wrong.

Moving

Hi,
I apologize I might have lots of questions but im totally new to this. Presently I have 4 receivers 2 HD and 2 SD connected on SW44 switch.My dish has 4 coax cables running inside the apartment going to SW44
I am moving to my first 3 storey townhouse and is actually being built right now. I have 5 cables distributed inside the house.All cables meet at the basement unfinished area. The South West side of the house is at the back.
I would assume that line of sight can already be attained when dish is instlled on the wall anywhere in the exterior wall of the second floor area and upward to the tip of the roof. (I think its PVC coated exterior) . Cables migh run down directly to the basement exterior wall (because only half of the basement is buried underground) and a hole might be drilled on the wall to penetrate inside directly to the basement unfinished area. Total cable run maybe approx 15 meters times 4 (from dish to central switch).
My question is:
Will Bell provide installation of the 4cables from dish to basement?
If ever they will drill the hole how will they insulate this?
Since Bell usually connects 1 to 2 receivers for free will they provide cabling from the SW44 to a receiver located in the basement?
Since I would have 5 receivers will I need another Switch ( I think I have spare SW21 if I remeber right) ?will it be free? Does the Technician configure the 2 switches install at least 1 receiver and I will activate the rest?
Im trying to lower down any cost possible. Contractor is a bit pushy on providing the cables from basement to dish at 60 dollars each times 4 cables so 240 dollars plus tax. Do you guys think this is better.
