Using only one output on DPP Twin?
I'm a single-receiver-only guy. I recently retired my 5100 with a 9241. The 5100 was fed by a single line running from a Legacy Quad LNB to the receiver.
For the 9241, I just this morning replaced the Legacy Quad with a DPP Twin, and added a DPP Separator at the back of the receiver to feed the two inputs on the 9241. After doing a check switch, everything seemed fine on the receiver.
During the install, for reasons of arm length out my second-floor window, and finger-tolerance in sub-zero temps, I was unable to get the RG6 cable to screw into Output #1 on the DPP Twin, and so instead put it on Output #2.
Are these two outputs identical, so in the case of only using one output, it doesn't matter? Or is the system going to get confused down the road if Output #1 isn't being used?
It should also be noted I had to swing the dish around 180 Deg to access the LNB from the window. So - for signal readings after the install - most tps on 91 were 2-3% lower after putting the DPP on, while those on 82 were the same or even slightly higher. So, while I was disappointed to lose readings of 98-100 on 91, I'm assuming this result is acceptable for a change of LNB, and trying to realign the dish more isn't really going to buy anything. Presumably the numbers on 91 will hold up ok while the slightly-higher numbers on 82 are a bonus as a result of the new LNB, esp given they are low anyway as a result of my location?
