I have a friend who has 2 dishes, and 2 receivers. Both receivers have only one input on them. We'd like to know if we can input both dishes into one receiver using a double adapter. I know what you're thinking, why not use one dish with 2 lnb's - the money is already spent the horse has bolted :) Thanks in advance.

Yup.

1: Both Sat Dishes into just ONE receiver use a "22KHz Satellite Switch" ~$10 on Trademe.

2: Both Sat Dishes into BOTH receivers you need a "DiSEqC Switch" with 2-inputs/2-outputs. Freeviewshop.co.nz has them but multi output switches cost a few pennies more.

If you only had one receiver you could use a diseqc switch or a 22khz switch to connect each dishes LNB to. But you have 2 recievers that you want to use these dishes with. What you need to do is replace the LNB's with dual output LNB's and get a diseqc or 22khz switch for each reciever and connect an output from each LNB to each diseqc/22khz switch.
