IF you are going to use the old HB cable connection, then it is important that the setting matches the physical cable connection. As you want to distribute RF to other viewing points and have an SLX splitter in place, the setting must be RF OUT on both decoders.

It does not matter at all what the setting is just from a HB point of view, BUT the setting must always match the physical cable connection.
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.

Can I leave my Explora1 as the Primary decoder, and the Explora2A as the secondary decoder? Or does the 2A have to be primary?

Either way is fine, although the 2A can be better as the primary in some other considerations (that don't currently apply to you).
