A DiSEqC Switch (Digital Satellite Equipment Control) is a device, which enables you to connect multiple LNBs to a common satellite receiver.
Connecting your Digital Satellite Receiver to several dishes give you the opportunity to increase the number of FREE-TO-AIR Channels to view.
In Nigeria and in Western Africa you can receive more than 20 different Satellites broadcasting FREE-TO-AIR channels. So why prevent yourself from increasing your number of TV Channels ?
How Does a DiSEqC Switch work ?
A DiSEqC Switch is a peripheral device which enable the selection of one of a multitude of connected LNB sources (950-2300MHz Intermediate Frequency) on the basis of digital commands generated by the receiver.
All Digital Satellite Receiver are not DiSEqC compliant, especially poor quality STB provided by Pay-TV operators. All STRONG Receivers are DiSEqC compliant.
You have to go to the Installation/Settings page of your STRONG receiver. Then you have to select the input of the LNB (1, 2, 3, 4 etc) according to the LNB which receives the signal of a particular satellite.
For instance, if the LNB which receives the signal of Astra 2F is connected to the input 1 of your DiSEqC Switches, you will have to select in the setting page input 1 for Astra 2F.
If you receive with a single LNB two different satellites (which are close in the space one from each other; for instance Amos 5 & Eutelsat 16), you will have to configure your receiver with the two satellites connected to the same input.
