IF you want to then I would suggest you get the Explora 2 to be the Primary and the two older decoders to be set to secondary when you activate it all.

Make sure the Unicable connection on the decoder side is on the correct diplexer port! The switch requires power from the decoders to work, hence why it is supposed to be a DC pass port.
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.

Explora 2 has amplification on the lnb port used for uniview and thus is recommended as the primary to overcome loss through the cables and diplexers, the explora 1 doesnt have amplification and can be affected by bad cable or connectors, thus losing the heart beat. Where possible always make the primary an explora 2 unless your running covential heart beats via RF in or RF out than it wont make a difference as there is no amplification on the RF ports
