Does not sound as if you are distributing RF around the home?

Only using RF connection for HB?

If so very simple, just remove one of the HD decoders and replace it with the Explora 3. That decoder will get HB via the SLNB  connection. Leave the other decoder HB  cable in place.

Make sure the UB  settings are correct on each decoder and don't clash. See the diagram previously posted for the details.

Or, post the settings for each and we can verify.

Re: Explora 3, Explora 2 and HD decoders

Hi Geoff

I would like to ask if you can help. I have the following setup:

- Primary (explora 2)

- Secondary 1 (HD 4s)

- Secondary 2 (HD 4s)

 

I have 3 cables connected on the 3 unicable connections on the Smart LNB going to the Sat In on all 3 the decoders, then I have a cables running from the Primary Decoder RF In to a splitter and then to the 2 Secondary Decoders RF Out. This setups works perfect. Now my Question, I bought a explora 3A and want to replace one of the Secondary decoders but I do not see any RF In or RF out. How would I go about. Many thanks

You will need a 80cm dish and a LMX501 smart LNB. The heart beat should feed through the SLNB

@GoeffD could please look at my diagram below to verify the wiring and settings TIA

What Model HD decoder. To give you the correct answers we need to know the HD Decoder model because the wiring will differ. I have a diagrams available for a Explora 1  Explora 2A and a HD 5U available
