The 5-1 switch do not have enough user bands to handle a Explora and a Explora 3A combination For that combination you need to either connect a second 5-1 switch in tandem or or switch to a SLNB preferable the LMX501. You will also need to connect a diplexer to enable the 3A to receive the heartbeat from the Explora. Alternative is to replace thee 501 switch with a 24-1Z swtch

Hey everyone, I would greatly appreciate some help.
This is my current setup (see attached sketch):
Here's what happens:
Here's what I've tried:
I see that the manual for the 5-1 switch says that 2 of the switches have to be used if an XtraView Explora setup is wanted as apposed to the 5-2 which says it can handle 2 Exploras. I would leave it as it is now but I'm doing a new setup for room #3 with the decoder in a media box on the back side of the wall and there isn't space/cooling for the Explora 1.
Everything seems to be working fine the way it is now but out of interest, should I expect to have any glitches/errors if we get the current switch/LNB combo to work? Explora 3A shows channel 100 perfectly. I'm going to phone tomorrow morning to add the extra decoder to the account. Perhaps the issues will come then?
Obviously I'd prefer not to have to replace the LNB/switch or to run more cables but I'll do it if necessary as I don't want to have to struggle with decoders not working properly.
Please excuse the crudeness but I have attached a sketch of the topography.
Many thanks, in advance.
