I do not think that it is easy to setup with a 3/2 multiswitch.

I have found a disec multiswitch for two twin LNBs to two receivers at
Conrad Electronics (article no. 257281) for 52 EUR.  I think something
like that should work well. There are other multiswitches for more receivers
available, but they are also more expensive, of course ;-)

Kind regards,
Stefan
