Hello everyone, new to this forum. This might have been asked before, if so I apologize. We are at a location where we cannot get sat 82 because of the footprint, but do get 91. Our trailer has a roof mounted dish with 2 ports on the LNB, but only a single coax into the RV. Can I run 2 short coax from the LNB to a SW21 switch, use the single feed from the roof to the dual tuner receiver and split the feed with another SW21 switch, thereby using inputs sat 1 & sat 2. We want to be able to watch one channel and PVR another. I know it's possible to do with a LNB and an OTA. Just a footnote: right now I ran an extra cable from the spare output on the LNB to a connection on the side of our RV, then into sat2 input on receiver. Just want to eliminate climbing on the roof when we move. Appreciate the help.

No, an SW21 is for combining signals from 2 orbital locations, it is NOT a splitter, plus you cannot split signals from Legacy LNBF's.

If the Dish has standard mounts for the LNBF you could swap out the LNBF for a DPP Twin, then behind the receiver use a DPP Seperator.

Thank you...after researching this forum I see my question has been addressed before, I just arrived at it through a Google search. Dpp Twin LNB and DPP Separator, got it.
