Hello

In my new house i got want to basically install a sky digibox. I got one of them and a sky minidish with lnb.

But my house outside already has one of them old big dishes. It looks as though the lnb on it is outdated is was mostly likely used for analouge satellite.

Now i was wondering is it possible just to take out the lnb from the sky minidish and insert it into my existing big dish. In that way my new lnb will support sky.

is this possible ?

any help appreichated

thank you

Kind Regards

Welcome to satellites,

The Mini-dish LNb will not fit onto the older dish. The dish would need to be re-aligned also.

It would be just as easy to install a new mini-dish

oh ok.

you see my minidish is in parts, i have no idea how to put it together as it comes with no manual. I don't have no professional meter also to align the dish.

Alignment will be easy and we can take you through it :)

Make the dish up and remove the old dish first.

See image, may give you an idea of how the dish assembles :D
