If you want 'the best' then arguably the Andrew/Channel Master is the one to go for. But they are much heavier than their peers and require a sturdy mount. Gibertini are also quite good at this size. A Raven 90 would be good for mounting a couple of LNBs if you don't have a motor.

I'm sure other people will come in with differing opinions :D

Get a Gibertini 1m dish and a Smart 0.2dB Titanium lnb or a Golden Interstar 0.3dB lnb, but I'm prejudiced.

Good choice (well I would say that wouldn't I ?) :D

Quite a gainy beast as I had a 1mtr for over 10yrs and thought that was good. But is a real difference between the two in that i'm now getting stuff that just wasn't there before.

Haven't used a C120 on it, I use an MTI blueline 0.3 LNBF.
Will be interested to see how you do with a separate feedhorn for it.
There is a UK importer that sells Gibertini feedhorns, but as always there is a debate about whether the average quality of manufacture makes up for having a C120 LNB.

Depends on your choice of fedhorn, but I think they come with 23-40mm adaptors.

If you got the Gibertini dish you should have been supplied with a reduction collar for the smaller diameter lnb's. If not PM me and I will search one out for you.

You'll be OK (probably) if you live in a sheltered location.
DiSEqC motors generally are not recommended for antennas over 100cm, no matter what the blurb says.

If you ordered a Gibertini feedhorn it will come with a adapter which fits perfect for the Gib. dish.
I know because I have bought one myself, havent had the system installed yet though, also 120cm Gibertini.
My supplier told me to not bother with diseqc-motor and when I got the dish I can see why, its a giant windtrap and also hard to fit because of the big bracket on the back. Actually some motors do not fit a Gib 120.
Since you have a motor you can of course see for yourselves!
