I see. How does this switch decide which input to route to which output 
at any given time? (Forgive me for the basic questions, I'm not familiar 
with big multi-switches like this) I don't see how it can work if both 
cards get connected to the same LNB, since the cards will both want to 
supply a specific voltage, as well as a specific tone presence (to 
control polarization and band) -- and they'll conflict if they are 
connected to the same device (unless the switch disambiguates it somehow)
