    I know of one reason.....to expand the amount of channels available without using multiple dishes.  By cascading two together, you can create 16 lines.

    I think biozrd1 means pairing the 2 switchs with four power passive splitters or what I use is the SWM port extender. That will properly allow 16 tuners to be feed off of a single dish. You can repeat the process multible times to get more connection, but it is not recomended to expand futher then 64 connections to a single dish.
