The problem is that your Dish is only made to see one Orbital Slot, either 82 or 91, the 51cm Dish, which will be too small for you is slightly oval and focuses signals from ywo Orbital slots onto the Twin or Qual LNBF's. THese Twin or Quads will not fit on your Dish.

A (DPP) Seperator can ONLY be used on a system with DP or5 DPP LNBF's it cannot be used on your Legacy Dual LNBF.

LNBF, naming conventions are not as easy as you might Your LNBF is a Dual Legacy one, 2 outputs and is only about 3" wide, the Twin and Quad LNBF's are double the width. The Twin has 2 OUTputs and 1 INput, the Quad has 4 OUTputs. Dual's are available as Legacy or DP (not DPP). Twin's are available as Legacy, DP or DPP, Quads are either Lagacy or DPP.

Using DPP type LNBF's give you the option of using a DPP Separator behind a Dual Tuner Receiver. NOTE that DPP LNBF's ONLY come as double the size and get signals from 82 and 91 from one Dish. DP LNBF signals cannot be split by a DPP Separator. In order to split a DP signal, it MUST pass through a DPP Switch, which works the magic to allow for splitting.

Therefore, if you swap the Dual Legacy for a Dual DP LNBF and feed the signals into a DPP44 Switch, you can then use a DPP Separator behind the 9400. It will at this time only be seeing 91 degree signals but will work just fine. Adding in another Dish, aimed at 82, with a DP LNBF and feeding its signal into the DPP44 in the future will add the HD Channels to your system...

Hope that long winded reply helps.....
