Thinking of purchasing this:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=60838&item=5775532666&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW
i have a 80cm dish

first off, is that a Ku-Band LNB, i dont know what it means or if any significance, but thats what my current one is, i think, as it says it in progdvb/mytheatre.

Second thing-= How do i put it on ?

The dish is currently pointing 13e do i leave it there shove first arm of lnb on? and second one is to the left i think. or do i point it to 19 and do vice versa? or do i point to 16 and move the big metal arm and try and centralise them?

Should be fine with ss2 right? has diseq1.0 doesn't it?

TIA

It is a Universal Ku-Band Monobloc and so would be suitable. I believe you align the rightmost LNB for 13E after fitting it to the collar and the left one should then need only a little alignment for 19.2E, however I have never installed a dish or LNB in my life! Just posting here to say yes it is Ku-Band and yes certainly suitable for a SS2 as they can do DiSECQ switching - have a 4/1 switch operating my own 3 LNBs excellently myself :D

Make sure you also have a dish size of at 80cm or so - I believe it won't work reliably with a much bigger dish (>90cm).
