How to connect two DStv Explora decoders with extra view

Use a Smart LNB to connect two DStv Explora decoders on Extra View. If you have no intention of connecting extra TV points using RF then the connection is straightforward. Simply run two RG6 cables directly from the Explora decoders to the Unicable ports on the Smart LNB. Then on the settings, use the quick setup to select the decoder numbers and run the scan process. If the two Explora decoders are using the same settings then you will experience signal problems.

How to connect an Explora without a Smart LNB

If you do not have a smart LNB, you can use a twin LNB and a Multiswitch to connect your Explora decoder. This is usually the case if you are staying in an apartment that uses a communal dish. But, this type of installation requires a lot of cabling since you will have to run two cables from the dish to the switch. The two cables coming from the dish should be connected to the ISO-20 inputs on the switch. You can then use the Unicable output to connect your Explora.

Still Experiencing Issues?

To successfully connect your Explora decoder, you will need to have an 80cm satellite dish, a Smart LNB, RG6 coaxial cable, and a signal finder machine. The availability of all features of your Explora decoder depends on the quality of the installation. If you have a smart LNB, the installation is quite straight forward. However, if you have a twin LNB or you stay in a complex that has a communal dish then you will need a Multiswitch to connect your Explora. Information on how to connect a Multiswitch id given at the end of the post. If you need help with connecting your Explora, contact us.
