- Pole mount 2.4M offset channel master + Inverto Black Ultra Quad at 28.5E. 70cm triax(?) with invacom quad pointed at 27.5W. 2 x Technomate tm5402hd + Panasonic Freesat TV. + spare Prime focus dish 180cm and invacom quad c120 lnb qdf-031.

1- no. does it make much difference? I bought the IBUQ with integrated feedhorn.I don't think the change of LNB will make that much a difference.
As has been determined on this and other boards, the IBUQ is the de facto standard for receiving 2x in Scandinavia.
If you get nothing at all, then you're probably not going to go from nothing to everything just swapping LNB.
The only point where the Invacom might be better is resolving cross-polarisation, but this only applies to a few of the 2G transponders AFAIK.
But it's worth trying - if you have one lying around.
Three (probably silly) questions, as you seem to be fairly adept at tuning the dish:
1) did you get a CM feedhorn with the dish?
2) do you have a proper meter (showing BER or MER)?
3) did you squeeze the last drops of skew out of the LNB when trying the IBUQ?
2-no. using skype to see the Q% on the TV connected to the TM 5402HD box while adjusting for desired transponder.
3-yes, but .. seems to not have a massive effect even over 20 degrees or so around where it is supposed to be set but made a 1-2% difference.
I am wondering whether the LNB holder is not right for the IBUQ as it gives best quality when slammed in right up against the holder. I get the feeling that if I was able to push it in another 1-2cm I might even get a stronger signal, but of course it cannot go in any further as the LNB body is pressing against the holder. This might then yield results for 2G. Any thoughts about this? I tried removing the holder and arms but too tricky - maybe a camera tripod will make it easier to investigate.
