The LoftBox® Expander has been designed to allow two LNB outputs to be connected to an existing LoftBox® distribution system.

It is ideally suited for when a SKY+ receiver is being installed. The Sky+ requires two feeds from the LNB (dish), so where there are no spare cables available to take the extra feed, the LoftBox® Expander combines the two feeds onto one cable.

The unit operates by adding the additional dish signal onto the returning UHF feed between the RFout2 port of the Sky set-top box and the UHF2 port of the LoftBox®. A Diplex plate WILL be required in the living room in order to successfully extract the second dish signal ready for connecting into the satellite set-top box (see system diagram).
