Ideal solution for DIRECTV, TiVo and FTA Satellite TV receivers
All Multi-Switches described on this page accept inputs from 13/17V and 14/18V switching systems, and are compatible with all the mini-dish systems on the market today.
How does it work?
When your satellite dish receiver is on, it normally sends one of two DC voltages up the coax to the dish antenna. This DC voltage normally tells the LNB (the receiver electronics in the dish) which of two bands of signal bands to receive. With a Multi-switch installed and connected to a dual LNB (one for each of the two signal bands), the Multi-switch see the "request" from a satellite dish receiver, it then switches through one of the signals. Your receiver does not react any differently when connected to a Multi-switch and the picture quality or signal strength is not degraded
