Er, so DiSEqC is the protocol used to control a multiswitch? The article doesn't quite come out and say that; I'm kind of left thinking that DiSEqC is the same as a multiswitch. Can this be clarified? There's also no "multiswitch" article in Wikipedia; it would be swell if someone added it. -- Mikeblas 01:19, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

Yes, most multiswitches use DiSEqC signalling. The picture is a multiswitch and the article specifies that it allows switching between mutliple sources... --Kiand 18:24, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Is posting links to stores that sell products spamming or not? Just wondering because satselect seems to have posted plenty of links for FTA products for sale on his website to various FTA articles... -- shepd Feb 14, 2005 @ 11:03 AM (EDT)

Generally, yes it is. --Kiand 18:24, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

Part about 'commited' and 'uncommited' switches?[edit]

There seems to be a difference between commited and uncommited switched. Diseqc 2.1 and 1.1 seem uncommited, meaning you can add commited switches after an uncommited switch. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.82.183.93 (talk) 10:21, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

How does it actually work ?[edit]

What signalling frequencies/techniques are used ? 213.40.128.124 (talk) 21:01, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Features/Capabilities of different versions[edit]

The table is a bit vauge about the different features offered by different levels of the protocol 213.40.128.124 (talk) 21:01, 31 March 2009 (UTC)


DiSEqC usage for other things than Satellite receiver[edit]

Could DiSEqC be used for other things than Satellite receiver? I mean could this be used for switching between two DVB-S satellite LNB cables and DVB-T cable? I suppose additional software or equipment would be needed for multiplexing and demultiplexing such combination of signals. Could be there any links be added in "see also" or external links by anyone who knows about it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.108.17.230 (talk) 11:58, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

DVB-S and DVB-T use different frequencies, so it is not necessary to disecq them. C2r (talk) 17:29, 28 February 2012 (UTC)


Diseqc digital compatibility[edit]

I removed the following: ", rather than being suitable for digital satellite systems, and indeed it has been used on fully analogue or only partially digital-capable (Astra Digital Radio) satellite receivers." This is because I'm using it to switch between digital satellite on 19.2 and 28.2 E so I think those comments were old. If I'm not understanding the original intention can someone reinsert it with clarification C2r (talk) 17:29, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure what it was trying to convey was that DiSEqC isn't used exclusively with/only compatible with digital satellite systems as the "digital" in the name might suggest. I have changed the article to reflect this. Alphathon /'æɫfə.θɒn/ (talk) 21:34, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
