Please, gentlemen, you are missing part of my point, and I find this rather boring discussing the ethics of satellite signal usage when this was not my intent of my thread. Lol

Thank you, and have a nice day [smile]

I have two lnb's on a 10 footer and 2 on an 8.5 footer. They do OK and pick up the strongest tP's which is all I wanted. Word of caution though...the block signal from getting to the dish. Four will greatly reduce your signal to all of them especially your prime ..I would not put one on the 12 footer....1. as big as that dish is it will not allow much signal in from adjacent sats...2. It will block enough signal that it will probably reduce the effectiveness of the dish to around a 10 footer or less and that will be enough to probably prevent you from getting the more often occurring 16apsk and DVB S2X. Just my experience and thoughts. I hope it works for you and you get what you need.

aliexpress has them (c band holder seems to bring up a few results) or try a hack saw and some redneck engineering
i have the side of the scaler hacked out on my 12 footer doing 97 and 99 on the side with no scaler
throats pretty much touched each other with a tiny shim between them gave me the best signal
cheap Chinese scalers made out of tinfoil are a bonus when you need to hack them apart

Something like that can work. Is your antenna motorized, and how many feedarms are there (3 or 4)?

That would work on a solid dish, but on a mesh dish it HAS TO BE pointed in the center plate in order for it to work.

TBH, I think that multifeeded LNB has to be pointed same on solid and mesh dish. Central LNB is pointed exactly to the center. Multifeeded LNB can be pointed anywhere where installer wants to. Such a multifeed allows to move LNB in any direction, full freedom of movement.

Well it doesn’t really matter with a Solid dish it look like maybe 3 degrees off. With a mesh it just won’t work period if you are not pointing to the center plate.

Well, then who/what is preventing pointing multifeeded LNB to the center plate?

I am really following you with the mesh when are not pointing the center plate you are pointing to open Open areas where no reflection can happen. The solid there is no open areas

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
