Wiring Diagrams for Dish Network Multi-Satellite Switches & Multi-Receiver Switches
  • Wiring Diagram for traditional Dish 500 Antenna connecting two receivers.
  • Wiring Diagram for Dish 500 TWIN Antenna connecting two receivers.
  • Wiring Diagram for Dish 500 TWIN and Dish 300 DUAL to capture signals from 3 satellite locations and connect one or two receivers.
  • Wiring Diagram for traditional Dish 500 and Dish 300 DUAL to capture signals from 3 satellite locations and connect up to eight receivers.
Traditional DISH 500 Installation
This installation is composed of equipment shipped with DISH 500 systems until the end of February 2000. It utilizes 2 Dual LNBFs, 2 SW21 switches, and requires each LNBF to have one output routed to 1 switch. Each switch then has one output to a receiver, allowing that receiver to display programming transmitted from satellites at 119 and 110.
DISH 500 Twin Installation for two receivers
Installation using a Twin LNBF allows programming from 2 satellite locations (119 and 110 only) and connection of up to 2 receivers as shown here. The Twin LNBF is the functional equivalent of 2 Dual LNBFs and 2 SW21 switches combined into a single LNBF. The benefit of the Twin LNBF is an installation that is typically quicker, easier and cleaner than using separate components.

DISH 500 Twin and DISH 300 with Dual LNBF
Using two SW21s for two receivers
Signals from 3 different satellite locations

This installation method provides programming from 3 satellite locations and supports up to two receivers. 2 SW21 switches are used to route the signals rather than the SW64 switch traditionally required to receive programming from 3 satellites. This setup shows a DISH 500 which “looks” at 119 and 110 satellite orbital locations and a second DISH 300 that “looks” at other locations such as 61.5. If connection of 3 to 4 receivers is required, a SW64 switch and two conventional dual LNBF’s must be used (not a twin LNBF).

Using two SW64s for us to eight receivers

Signals from 3 different satellite locations
Using this installation configuration, support for 2 or 3 satellite positions and up to 8 receivers is achieved. The following example illustrates satellite reception from 61.5, 110, and 119 servicing 8 receivers. Equipment required to perform this installation includes two SW 64 switches, six satellite grade 2 way splitters with one DC block output, and three “feed through loads” (these are NOT in line amplifiers). Conventional dual LNBF’s are required in this installation, do not use the Twin LNBF.
