Your last question about splitters was in the Shaw Cable Forum, where the correct answer is 1 Ghz.

For Bell TV, I would strongly recommend 3 Ghz but please NOTE splitters cannot be used in the same way as Cable, there are very specific installations when a splitter can be used.

Well without going into details covered many times, you cannot take 1 line from the LNBF and use a splitter to feed 2 Receivers.

You should be looking at a Multiswitch.

What do you have now, Dish/Receivers etc.?
What do you want to add.?

I can then advise accordingly.

Just because it is Bell Approved it will still NOT work for splitting 1 line to feed 2 Receivers.

No, it is NOT misleading at all. Nowhere does it say "Will allow splitting of 1 line to feed 2 Receivers".

It says "Bell Approved", which it is.

Bell produce and APL (Approved Parts List), it a product is NOT on the APL, it should NOT be used for any part of a Bell TV Installtion.

Well, firstly you do know that if you call Bell to subscribe to HD you will get the Upgrade for FREE.?

That said, what you need is another LNBF, 2 x SW21's and another line from the Dish. This is assuming you are using Single Tuner HD Receivers, 6100/6131 or 6141's.

This image is how the above will look.



Just ignore the Dual Tuner part that will be 2 Single Tuner Receivers.

Or you could just get one of these, much easier and less cabling;



If then at some point you want to swap a Single Tuner Receiver for a Dual, you just add one of these behind the Receiver;



NOTE; It is NOT a Splitter..... Honest.
