Dstv Decoder Swap

(1/2) > >>

Homer:
I have an old HD PVR 2P decoder which is slowly packing up. It will record but wont play back.

My question is: can I simply swap it out with a new Explora Ultra or does it need a new dish or other hardware?

Apologies if this has been discussed before. A quick search did not show up a similar thread.

Family_Dog:
Same dish but it needs a 'Smart' LNB. Scrarfussi would be the guy to ask for advice.

scrarfussi:
You will need a smart LNB
it just uses one cable

Homer:
I forgot to mention - we live in a complex where there are no dishes. I think the signal comes from one source and is then distributed to all the homes.

scrarfussi:
Then you need to buy a smart switch
And connect your Two lnb feeds to it and the one to the explora
