I have a new SB3005 on my motorhome which works fine. I also have a ground mount dish for when there are trees in the way of the coach. The coach has cable routed to an outside plug to connect the portable dish when it is used. What kind of coupler do I need to connect the two dish feeds inside the coach so I don't have to change cables to the receiver each time?
I have a similar question;
My Directv DVR needs two sat antenna inputs to work.
Have a roof mounted Winegard manual dish antenna with ONE lead cable thru roof.
Also have a portable Winegard sat antenna on ground.
With both antennas hooked up, I can rec. all my Directv channels.
Life is good!!
I would like to use only ONE sat antenna at a time.
Want to hook both Sat antenna leads to a switch that has TWO output connectors for my Directv DVR rec.
Reason being, I won't have to pull the DVR out and change sat antenna connections when I go from roof dish to ground portable antenna.
Will only have ONE antenna dish at a time rec. signal. I promise!!
What equipment will I need to set it up this way??
It sounds like you will need a second cable from the roof OR you will have to set your receiver to SINGLE TUNER mode.
Once you do either of these things you should be able to use the same A-B switch concept as I mentioned above.
Thanks for reply.
You say I should have a second sat lead from roof sat dish for a dual tuner DVR. I agree. But the WG manual antenna's I have are only single LNB. (Can't get another cable thru roof for dual LNB..sorry)
What do you recommand I do to get the second feed?
The ideal set up for me would be a "widget" with two inputs: A & B, Two outputs: 1 & 2.
When input A (roof dish) has a signal it feeds to both 1 & 2 outputs.
Conversely, when input B (ground portable dish) has signal it also feeds to outputs 1 & 2.
That way I would not have to pull DVR out of very hard to get to area and change cables everytime I need to switch between the two antenna's. And Yes, I will only use one antenna at a time. So Question is: What type "Widget" will allow me to do this???
Also please confirm you are saying that a cheap A-B splitter or switch will work between LNB and sat reciever??
There currently is no "widget' for this.
The driving force for things like this is the home market. Since there is no reason the home market will ever need something like this, it has not been developed.
Unfortunately, you will have to switch manually.
