Not exactly

[card2]------| 8 ports in   |
                --| 2 ports out |----(port 1)------- [universal LNB]
                --| switch        |----(port 2)-------[empty]
cards are connected to ports where i am _not_ able to switch if it has to use 
22kHz for switching low/high. These are only diseqc ports.

The second port is free, there is no second LNB attached to it. The "big" 
switch is only used to get 8 cards/recievers connected.

The only seperate hardware the cards have is the cable to the switch.
