Sadly the connection has failed, no longer working. Thanks for all the input from all. I will now have to run a hb cable.

I may stand corrected and I am sure Geoff will correct me if I am wrong but a Diplexer behind the HD 2P may suffice.

That's fine if the 2P uses a Unicable connection and the LNB cable distances aren't too long. I think the recommended max was 15m each, if over that then check older threads or wait for MC FS to confirm.

You can use a diplexer behind the 2P. That way the HB via the unicable and LNB will be all that is required.
Spare decoders: SD PVR(3) PSU's, DSD 660, 1110, 1131, Explora 1.
Spare switches and LNBs: 1 x 5-1(repaired); 1 x 5-2.Numerous so called faulty LNBs that were easily repaired.
2 unmentionable FTA decoders
1.2m antenna, 8-way universal LNB, 2 x (2x6) MS, FSM permanently connected.

when connected with a explora one than recommended 20m max using external diplexers but if your using an explora 2 than 50m is fine
