The DStv Switch (5-1) has two Explora outputs (labelled A and B) and four
normal multiswitch outputs (labelled 1 to 4).
• The Explora outputs can only be connected to a DStv Explora, they aren't
designed to connect to other decoder models. (Note: The DStv Switch (5-1)
can only be connected to one DStv Explora at any one time.)
• The four normal multiswitch outputs can be connected to up to four single
view decoders, one 4 Tuner HD PVR, or a mix of DStv decoders (other
than the DStv Explora). Again, remember that the DStv Explora cannot be
connected to these particular outputs.
These diagrams exclude the connections between decoders that are required for XtraView. For
information on XtraView installations, including connections and settings, please contact a DStv
Accredited Installer or go to www.dstv.com
Connecting the DStv Switch (5-1) to one DStv Explora
Once the switch has been connected to the satellite dish, use the

labelled UNICABLE™ IN on the back of your DStv Explora.
