Yes, both connections must be running from the dish to the multiswitch.

The reason being is because the multiswitch requires seperate inputs for the even and odd transponders, that way every output of the multiswitch is able to access those transponders at any time.

You CAN look into a stacker/destacker combo, but they are very expensive, and should only be used if it is impossible to run a 2nd line.

Designing a switch that would allow one input and two outputs can't be that difficult.
Yes it is difficult, if not impossible.

Using current satellite technology this is what's required. The multswitch MUST have both odd and even transponders available at all times to all outputs, or you end up with the problem you have now. The only way to get both odd and even at the same time is to have seperate lines to the dish which are locked into either odd or even.
