I am currently using a Humax 5410z decoder which allows for a maximum of 8 satellites dish lnb antennas, using a combination of 22k and diseqc switches.
My current dish setup is configured like the following.
The cheapest way to add additional satellites to my configuration would be to purchase another 4 way diseqc switch and run the 2 Diseqc switches through a single 22k tone switch to get the extra satellites. Just wondering if this will work?
Or will I need to go the more expensive route and purchase additional 22k switches like the following setup?

tone burst and 22khz are 2 different types of switching
If you used tonebust you can use universal lnbs, if you use 22khz you will not have all the bands available to you
This is the 22k switch I have used. I hope this makes things a lot clearer

When you select universal, both 9750 and 10600mhz are supported at the same time. 22KHz tone setting is unnecessary. (Disabled).
I just assumed this would be the same as selecting 22KHz off (0KHz).
Otherwise what your saying is just stick with 22k switches on each Diseqc port for the single LO Frequency lnbs and then leave the universal LNBs on seperate Diseqc ports without 22k switches.

The tone burst is sent within the ~93 ms spaces in the steady 22KHz tone. The later switches/LNB see this as an uninterrupted 22KHz ON or OFF.
In other words, it doesn't matter where you put them.
