This can't be "directly" as each card want to drive the LNB with different
voltage (around 14 or 17V), to select different polaritys; to do it correctly,
you need an 'spliter with DC block in one way'. Anyway, you have the problem
that one card fix the polarity/band and the other can't change this.
A twin LNB have two fully independent connections, for two receivers/cards.

Each card will have a Diseqc switch connected to one of the outputs of the two
LNBs and will do a recording on any of the two satellites.

The problem is the same!; For this you would need to connect the output of the
QPSQ demodulator (in the frontend) to the output of the demodulator in the
other card, *after have put this outputs in high impedance*. As this isn't
supported by the standard hardware, you should install some TTL IC's in both
cards, which isn't a task for anybody :-), without forget how control it from
the standard hardware/drivers.
