How to Install a 4X1 DiSEqC Switch

A 4X1 DiSEqC switch combines the feeds from up to four different satellite dishes to connect to a single satellite receiver. DiSEqC switches are commonly used in free-to-air (FTA) satellite systems that use multiple dishes to collect as many television channels as possible. The switch installs with standard satellite cables and can be installed in just a few minutes.

Things You'll Need

  • Coaxial cables


    • 1

      Connect the coaxial cable from one satellite dish to the "LNB 1" jack on the side of the DiSEqC switch.

    • 2

      Fasten the coaxial cables from the other dish to the remaining "LNB 2," "LNB 3" and "LNB 4" jacks on the switch.

    • 3

      Connect the coaxial cable from your satellite receiver to the "Out" jack on the switch.
