Very well written and interesting data you got there. But I don't just 
get it why even this doesn't work, though you mentioned that it works 
with the biltema stuff as both of mine are of those. Same thing still 
occurs with both switches, to watch channels with V-pol I first must 
switch to a H-pol channel.

Could this somehow be a limitation of the Skystar 2-pci card? Then 
again, best configuration that actually has worked flawlesly so far with 
these twin-lnb's is the configuration for a mini-diseqc with A and B 
commands, but then I'm without the 3rd satellite. Veeery confusing.

I'm off to work now, so I can't continue testing and exploring until 
tomorrow again.

Thanks for your replies guys,
HH
