1)diseqc switch 1x2..(usually we buy 1x4 for future use)
2)conect the Lnbs cables to the A & B diseqc ports ,and from OUT port the cable to receiver
(and in the receivers menu you change the set up for each Sat to same port which you have conect the lnbs..)

2 Dishes well on dish one i would put 3 lmbs on it so you can pick up astra , hotbird & eutelsat w3
on the other i would leave one for the moment to pick up hisposat
on the Main Dish with the three lnbs on it place a 4 lnb conecter pluga at the back so you have lnb 1 astra lnb 2 hotbird lnb 3 eutelsatw3
on the other dish run the an extra long piece of cable to reach the conector of lnb 4 and then you will have the one running to the reciever.
this is my set up and it beats any motor any day
and its cheaper

3 Dishes, or????
Dishes, motors, LnB's and switches come quite cheap nowadays,
and i'm mounting a second dish here now.
The first one, that i already have, is a firm mount with 4 LnB's, pointing like this:
LnB #1:Thor (1 west) LnB #2:Sirius (5 east) and Eutel W3 (7 east),
LnB #3:Hotbird (13 east), and LnB #4:Astra 1 (19 east).
The two at Thor and Sirius/W3, are dual LnB's, and connected to two decoders,
one by a 2:1 Diseqc switch, and the other by a 4:1 Diseqc switch.
The second dish will have a Stab HH100 motor, and be connected to a third decoder.
If this is successful, next year i will mount a third dish, with motor,
and then be able to set parameter limits to both the motorized dishes like this:
Dish #1:No further west than 7 degrees east, (gets anything from 7 east and eastwards).
Dish #2: No further east than 5 degrees east. (Will get anything from 5 east and westwards).
This third dish will be connected to a fourth decoder, connected to my PC.
I think THAT would give me almost every channel accessable in my area.:laugh:
