Yes they work well. You replace your quad LNB with a quattro and connect the 4 cables to the multiswitch which can have 8,10 or more independent outputs.

The multiswitch is fitted ideally near the dish and needs electricity to make it work so needs to be protected in a waterproofcase.If the electricity supply is stopped then nobody will get a signal.

Its best to have a multiswitch with more outputs than you require because individual outputs can break down for whatever reason, so yyyou will have some spare. The whole thing can break down as well due to a big power surge or nearby thunderbolt.
