Well,

using the following :

S19.2E  11700 V  9750  t v W15 [E0 10 38 F0] W15 t
S19.2E  99999 V 10600  t v W15 [E0 10 38 F1] W15 T
S19.2E  11700 H  9750  t V W15 [E0 10 38 F2] W15 t
S19.2E  99999 H 10600  t V W15 [E0 10 38 F3] W15 T

S13.0E  11700 V  9750  t v W15 [E0 10 38 F4] W15 t
S13.0E  99999 V 10600  t v W15 [E0 10 38 F5] W15 T
S13.0E  11700 H  9750  t V W15 [E0 10 38 F6] W15 t
S13.0E  99999 H 10600  t V W15 [E0 10 38 F7] W15 T

S28.2E  11700 V  9750  t v W15 [E0 10 38 F8] W15 t
S28.2E  99999 V 10600  t v W15 [E0 10 38 F9] W15 T
S28.2E  11700 H  9750  t V W15 [E0 10 38 FA] W15 t
S28.2E  99999 H 10600  t V W15 [E0 10 38 FB] W15 T

works perfectly for cards 0 and 2, but not together.
card 1 can't tune to anything else than astra 19.2E ???
And I don't understand why -D0 -D2 don't work neither ?

No, I can connect the DVB cards to any output of the LNB and it
decodes the signal very well.

I am bad a drawing but I try :

No, quiete simpler here.

Well, it works more or less...
