Had 2 cables coming into my unit which was fine, could run dstv and ovhd together. But the 2nd cable coming in is now re-assigned to a heart beat cable which goes to my neighbours unit for extraview ( we are garden cottages on the same premises.
I was hoping that with just that one cable that comes in, there is a way to run the one cable to a unicable lnb then to my ovhd lnb input, from the ovhd lnb output then to my dstv input. That way the different polarisation wouldn't be an issue. From what Ive read, this cannot be done though. A multiswitch wont work as I still have the issue of only one cable coming in from an lnb.
The simply solution would be to just ad another cable, but that is not possible here, I am unable to get the permission to do so. Besides , it would have to be surface cable from outside, into my kitchen, then through the wall into my lounge. That has already been done with the 2 cables that come in, but they have been cemented into the plaster so are barely visible. There is no direct way into my lounge unless I run surface cable in my bedroom to which I could then go into the lounge and quite low down, but to make this possible, there would then be surface cable outside along the wall, which I wont get permission for.
Unless of coarse there were such thing as a multiswitch that can take a unicable input and have legacy outputs, That would solve all my problems, but it would seem that such a device does not exist. Unless you know of one and can point me in the right direction, Id be most greatful. The only ones I can find are 4 legacy inputs that create 2 smart outputs and a few legacy outputs.
