Nope, as I said, it will work. Details will be posted if needed by OP.

There is nothing that I can add to Optimist's advice. 

We do not have any detail of the LNB type and cabling the of the installation. Changing to an SLNB or using 24-1Z switch will not eliminate the need for a HB cable as the DSD1110 is only capable to receive the signal through a  RF port.

Buy a diplexer from a satellite spares store. They're not expensive.

The port labelled "I/O" must go to the 3A's Unicable In port, the "Ant" port connects to the HB (HeartBeat) cable going to the 1110's RF port, and the "Sat" port connects to the cable from the dish's LNB.

 

If you don't want a HB cable, someone will help you with how to change connections for that... but you must then have either a SLNB (Smart LNB) or the 24-1Z Smart ES (Explora Switch).

 

The 3A has to be the primary in this combination as it's the only PVR.

Thank you for the reply.

I've checked just now, I had it wrong, this is the Explora 3A not the 2A.

 

On the 3A there's no visible RF OUT port, only the Unicable in

Are you sure it is a Explora 2A you have. The Explora 2A DSD1110 should be able to use the same LNB and cabling setup you used with the Explora. 

Both Explora and Explora 2a use the RF out port for the heart beat signal

Explora 2 with DSD1110 as Extraview decoder setup

Hi All,

I'm new here. I've searched everywhere and can't find a solution to my problem.

 

My Explora sustained liquid damage and was replaced with an Explora 2.

 

Problem is, the Explora 2 doesn't seem to have a connection for the "Heart beat" DRM signal to be connected to my DSD1110 decoder.

 

I've talked to customer care, but they're unable to help.

Is it possible to have the Explora 2 as the main system and the DSD1110 decoder as the ExtraView decoder?

 

Has anybody got this setup up and running?

I don't want to make the DSD1110 the main decoder because I want to take the Explora 2 with me when we go on holidays.

 

Any advise will be appreciated.
