    I currently have the round DirecTV dish (dual LNB) and a multi-switch, output to 4 receivers.

    I'd like to have a fifth feed, as I'm considering a DirecTivo unit and would like to be able to take full advantage of it's dual tuner recording capabilites.....so my two questions are:

    1) how would I do this with my current set-up?

    2) how would this be done if I upgrade to the HD triple LNB dish (which I believe has a built in multi-switch)?

    Thanks,
    Vin

    Spaun makes a 2X6(SMS-261F) and a 3X6(SMS-361F) multiswitch that should do the trick. The 3X6 has an additional off-air input.
