    1000.2 and DP 44 switch for FTA Receivers

    I read a post from Casper from a couple of years ago,

    "A very common misconception about this setup has to do with the internal diseqc switch in the lnb. As long as no outside diseqc is used in combination with it, you will get all 3 or 4 (if + port is used with another pro lnb) birds on 1 cable going to your stb. If you have 3 stb's, you will simply need to run 1 cable from a port to stb 1, run another cable to stb 2, and run a third cable to stb 3. This cable already has the signal from all the birds so you don't have to run thru any other switching to get it. Your stb will switch it automatically, when properly set up."

    I have read other posts from different sites that say you must use a DP 44 switch.
    So which is correct?

    You need the DP44 switch if you are going to run more that 2 receivers.
