    Using a triple Monoblock plus one other LNB

    Here's a puzzle for you. :-)

    I have a triple monoblock LNB on one dish for Sats 13E, 16E and 19.2E. I have another dish with a single LNB for Sat 39E. I would like to connect all Sats/LNBs using Diseqc for automatic switching by the Octagon eg; Say using the A/B/C/D Diseqc settings but these will seemingly only work for A/B/C with the triple LNB. How do I utilise the separate LNB? Any ideas? Many thanks.

    Your best bet would be individual LNBs.

    Of course. It's just that due to cramped locations plus trying to utilise what I already have I would ideally like to use the system I proposed. Just wondering if it was easy to do. Maybe using an additional small switch.

    Nothing off the shelf is going to work. You either need to make a switch your self that recombines outputs 1/2/3 or use separate LNBs. If there is a problem with size use Inverto MultiConnect.
