Hope someone can help, the more I Google the more confused I become....

 

 

 

I have a dual LNB setup with D1 on one and Intelsat 19 on the other with 4 port DiSEqC and Ultraplus receiver. All was working AOK. (Best thing I did this year was ditch Sky)

 

Have a family member here for a few months and wanted to add their Sky box for them, so installed a (old) splitter after the DiSEqC switch.

 

All works except I can not get a signal on V polarity TPs on Intelsat 19, hence no Nine Network. H polarity seem OK though.

 

If I disconnect the Sky box all is OK.

 

Is it a setup issue with the Sky box? DiSEqC or tone? Google says V and H polarity use different voltages.

 

It's all just a little beyond my rudimentary knowledge.

 

Thank you for your help.

Skybox would be outputting 18 VDC for horizontal polarity. You discovered normal behaviour for such a setup, i.e., using a splitter.

Thank you for the reply.

 

Can you suggest a setup that will work?

You would need to use dual output LNBs (horizontal + vertical) and a 4 (in - horizontal and vertical from each LNB) x 2 (output) multiswitch.

Awesome,

 

thanks for your help.

 

I think I'll setup the old sky dish I have instead.

 

I appreciate your time and effort.
