    I thing there is no limit

    You can connect 1-8-16lnb...
    single lnb - Quatro LNB ...
    diseqC 4x1,8x1...
    multiswitches with more than 20 output...

    there is no limit

      Agree with Kalpikos.

      Just one word of caution if you intending to use one dish with a quad/octo lnb for different properties, e.g. a block of flats, I believe there can be problems with different electrical circuits causing grounding and potential differences. You need to make sure the outputs are properly earthed.

        As many recivers as you want as long as you are talking about a fixed dish and multiple LNBs on one dish and disqeqCs or 1-2-quad LNB etc on one dish.
        Once you start talking about motorized dishes, multiple receivers fall out unless they decide to view from one satellite at a time.

              increasing the number of lnbs on a stable dish depends on its diameter and direction of the satellites you want to receive.

                All that you want. In this picture you can plug 4 receivers, but if you get a sat splitter with many more outputs, you can plug as much as your sat splitter allow it.

                    you have to use a Twin lnb
                    or you can use more than 1 twin lnb and 2 diseqC e.g. 4x1

                      Ok twin LNB as seen in picture, because so, you can tune horizontal and vertical polarizated channels at the same time.

                        It is possible, but the motor can be in control of only one receiver

                          vecchia_signora,
                          which way do you go in the end, motor, multi lnb, monoblock lnb, and how many receivers on splitter.
                          how about your results, we dying to know.

                            The more lnb's you fit on a sat dish the worse the reception, besides the lnb's blocking the signal, you have signal loss on all the lnb's that are not pointing to the maximum signal on the dish, when you point them at the dish at different angles to get the offset for that sat you are not using the maximum area of the dish so will result in even more signal loss.

                              you will only block signals if mounting multiple lnbs on a parabolic dish, this dish is really only for 1 bird. offset dish for multiple lnbs as focal arm point below centre of dish, this has been discused many times fandm
