Good solution to multi-dish system Aug. 11 2010
By JV in Idaho - Published on

We have an RV with three satellite input options. We have the King Dome on the front of the roof of the RV, a MotoSAT in the middle of the roof of the RV, and a pair of coax fittings in a bay on the outside of the RV that can be fed from an external, tripod mounted dish. Each of these three sources feeds two separate receivers in the RV, one for the front TV and one for the rear TV.

We feed the external dish source and the King Dome source into one SW21 at the front, and one SW21 at the rear Dish receiver location. We then feed the output of those into two more SW21's, one at each location, along with the source from the MotoSAT, to make all three sources available to each of the two Dish receivers. That's a total of four SW21's. The system works great.

I would suggest not having more than one source locked onto a satellite, however, as the different coax lengths would no doubt present two seriously incompatible data streams to the receivers. In other words, take care to have only one data source feeding into the network. I am extremely happy with the results from the SW21 Multi-Dish Switch.

Dish Network SW21 Nov. 10 2011

This switch is used with older Dish Network systems; the newer systems have the switch integrated into the LNBF. The switch is easy to replace and works just fine, although the life span seems to be somewhat limited. We have had problems with the old Dish system over the past two years. We were never able to determine whether the problem was with the older receivers or with the SW21 switch. If you have an older system and replacing the switch fixes your problems, good for you.

I bought two of these to have a spare but as well made as they are I don't expect a problem unless it gets damaged in some way.

However my equipment is so old and rusted that it was necessary to get a whole new system. But for the price it was worth it to make sure it was more than just a bad switch.
Just what we needed Aug. 10 2013

Just perfect for one of our older dish receivers it lets the obsolete receiver almost seamlessly merge and power the LNB's on two different dishes.
