Hm, back to basics of satreception...
if you want more then one satelite you will need a so called diseq-switch, it has 2 ore more 
connectors for lnb's and one for a sat-receiver/card. you need such a switch to connect multiple 
lnb's to one receiver/card of vdr.
if you want to connect another card to these lnb's youlneed 3 so called twin-lnb's (these habe two 
signal-outputs) and another diseq-switch.
This is the way it's done regularly.
