Allan B Yes, actually that is quite easy.

Cover one side (82) of the Twin LNBF with Foil, then peak the signal on 91. Providing the Skew and the Mast were vertical before starting, removing the foil and running a Check Switch should now show both birds.

Typically the separator is only a few feet from the receiver. A DPP separator can NOT be used on two separate receivers. You can still run two lines into a dual receiver if you don't have a separator. Separators cost less than $10. A DPP twin is about the same as a DP twin.

The lnb has two outputs and one input from another satellite which allows three satellites on each output. The input is the one by itself on the right.
is it possible to point a DPP Twin @ 91' and have the antenna so far out of alignment that the LNB for 82 picks up 91 or vice versa??

Allan B No, it can only be used for signals from a DP LNBF.

richdsolution Hi Q,
can the input on the DPP twin be use for an OTA antenna? At the other end it would require of course a diplexer.

They make a version of the dpp seperator called a dpp triplexer. It allows 2 dpp tuner inputs and a over the air antenna connection all over a single wire.


Basically u can do what ur askung for with less components, then u put a diplexer near the dish and connect your antenna to it. Is that what you were asking for?

Allan B Swap out the LNBF's and discard the SW44, it is no longer required and will not work with DPP LNBF's.

Get a DPP Quad LNBF and 2 x DPP Separators, use one line to each receiver and then behind each dual Tuner Receiver add the Separators.

joe123 I have a regular dual lnb, I have one dual tuner and two single tuners, want to go to two dual tuners and one single tuner without adding another line into the house. If I swap for dpp lnb can I leave the existing sw44 switch and just swap the lnb's ?

Pinza You will need 4 x DPP 44 switch's.

Feed these from ports 1 & 2 of the DPP Quad.

Split each line with a 3Ghz All Port Power Passing Splitter, feeding 1 line to the same port on each DPP 44.
2014-10-30 06:02 PM
Belcriss Then is there a way to do it off a DPP Quad, or do I have to go back to the old LNB's? If I do, I don't have a problem putting another dish up, its not that big of a deal.

Pinza SW44's will not work off a DPP Quad.
