Hi!

I live in Oslo, Norway and wonder if it is possible to have 1 dish with 5 LNB's. I want to get 1w, 5,13,19,28 east. Today I have a Fibo dish with motor, but the motor is broken and I would like to watch 28 east on one tuner and at the same time watch some other satellite on my other tuner.

You can fit up to four LNB's on one dish which is the norm as long as it is big enough such as one of say 90cm. What you do is align the primary focus on the weakest bird and put the offset LNB's either side. Not sure the best solution for Norway. The maximum extension you could probably have on an arm for one LNB is 20° otherwise it will bounce up and down in the wind! I have 15° here and that moves about. The best solution is to get the motor fixed

Ejo, please don't post the same question in multiple forums. I've merged the replies and removed the thread from the Sky digital forum

Yes, there are dishes specially designed to accept up to 16 separate LNBs from a range spanning up to 40 degrees of arc (so more than you need).

They are called toroidal dishes, and are made by Wave Frontier. See here: http://www.wavefrontier.com/

They come in two sizes which give the same performance as typical 55cm & 90cm diameter parabolic dishes.

Real Tele-Satellite's review of the product here: http://www.tele-satellite.com/TSI/01/11/wavefrontier/

There are also some dishes which accept up to 4 LNBs with a smaller range of about 20 degrees. These include the "Triax Unique" (see http://www.msat.nl/winkel/nl/dept_95.html) and the "Raven Parabol" (see http://parabolspecialist.dk/Antenner/antenne.htm). But it sounds like the range is just a bit too small for what you want.

No problem. "He who never makes a mistake never makes anything" as they say in my part of the world.
