A DPP44 switch will also give you four outputs however requires the lnb(s) to be DPP twin, DP singles, DP duals, DP twin or a DP quad. Just like the DP34 it only requires two lines into the switch to get 82 and 91.

This switch just like the DPP twin allows you to use a DPP separator(s) for dual tuner receivers. Therefore it is possible to have 4 receivers regardless if they are dual tuner. Another advantage of DPP technology is that legacy receivers work as long as you have one DP or DPP compliant receiver hooked up.

This receiver requires a power adaptor to be hooked up on port one. Unfortunatly the DPP44 is the most expensive switch and are very rare to find in Canada for sale. It will cost you around $100 or more after shipping, duty etc.

This switch has four inputs from four different orbital locations if that matters to you.

Dual LNB

Hi All,

I'm sure this has been asked a million times but can you use a dish 500 with dual LNBF's (2 feeds of each sat) and plug all four into a DPP44? Reason I want to do this is to piggy back on the existing cabling in my new home and only one feed to each room.

Regs,

Chad J.

You only need one line per satellite. If you have 4 wires........just plug in the two correct ones.

Yes, you can cascade a second DPP44 switch to the first, giving you another four ports.

The picture quality does not change with a DPP44 switch. The signal is digital. Either you get what you're suppose to get or you just don't get a signal. There's no degradation possible.

You need either Dish Pro or Dish Pro Plus LNBs for the DPP44 switch.

Post #1 tells you quite clearly what kind of LNBF it requires......
