I have had the second Invacom quattro c120 pack up on me last week. I had a spare Inverto Black Pro, which also did not work on Horizontal.

When Í tried to get it replaced, I was told, they are not produced anymore as are the Invacom lnb's.

What is the alternative other than SWM, which cost about 10 times what the others would be?

Get a 40mm quattro LNB and cut the feed horn from it. Then transplant the C120 fitting from an Invacom LNB onto it.

Thanks, has somebody done that before?

Yes, there are several members of this forum done that type of transplant with C120 flange onto the neck of a 40mm collar LNB.
