Connecting Up To 4 Dishes On One Decoder Using A Diseqc (pauxis) 4x1 switch. by lovala(m): 2:41am On Apr 25, 2010
People, my very first time I wanted to connect two dishes to my Strong 4663x box, I encountered some problems and nearly lost money either in changing the switch with another or getting some one to do it for me. I did get help from members of this and other fta forums. This has prompted me to create this baby thread so that those experiencing a similar situation should check it out and help themselves rather than bothering the gurus even though they are here for us and we for them.

My DisEqC switch is the Pauxis model. Just like other switches, it has five (5) ports labeled: LNB1 to LNB4 and one port labeled DisEqC to receiver.
Let’s assume that your four dishes are pointed at: LNB1 – Intelsat7/10; LNB2 – EW3; LNB3 – Astra2B; and LNB4 – EW2. 

Steps:
1. Connect the cords from your dishes (up to four) into ports LNB1, LNB2, LNB3, and LNB4 respectively.
2. Connect the cord from your receiver into port DisEqC to Receiver.
3. Turn on your tv and receiver.
4. Go into the menu.
5. Put in your 4 digit code and get into the dish setup.
6. Select Intelsat7/10 as your satellite
7. Scroll down to DisEqC and change from Off to On.
8. Drop down and commit Intelsat7/10 to port 1.
9. Hit the Exit button and whether to save the changes made, hit YES.
10. Enter dish setup again and change your satellite to EW3.
11. Scroll down and commit it to port 2.
12. Go back up and change the satellite to Astra2B and commit it to port3.
13. Repeat step 10 selecting EW2 and then commit it to port 4.
14. Exit.

Go ahead and enjoy FTA for life.

@lovala. Nice work! Just want to add that one could connect up to sixteen (16) lnbs to a single decoder. How? This could be achieved by cascading the diseqc swiches. In order to implement this setup we will need five (5) 4*1 diseqc switches which I have labeled switches (1),(2),(3),(4) and (5). Fill up switch (1) and connect its output to the lnb1 input of switch(5). Fill up switch(2) and connect its output to the lnb2 input of switch(5). Next fill up switch(3) and connect its output to the lnb3 input of switch(5). Finally, fill up switch(4) and connect its output to the lnb4 input of switch(5). Now connect the output of switch(5) to your decoder and you are set to go. Go to Installation setup on your decoder and choose DISEQC protocol 1.0. Choose port1 to access the satellites connected via switch(1). Choose port2 to access the satellites connected via switch(2),etc. Enjoy!

Thankx my bros. it will do us a world of good if you can also upload a diagram explaining this (I guess there is one some where on the pages of the general fta forum) since pictures speak louder than words. undecided

@freshp/lovala. The pix you saw on the general forum is for cascading diseqc switches using a 0/12v switch. The setup can deal with up to a maximum of 12 lnbs. My own set up is quite different as you do not need a 0/12v switch.
