I read recently that you'll need an LNB that's designed for oval satellites to get the best reception for a Sky dish (which is oval shaped).

I am planning on getting an HD ready octo-LNB so that I can convert the dish that's being used for Sky currently to get Freesat in 5 rooms. However, I've only saw _http://www.maplin.co.uk/Search.aspx?criteria=Octo%20LNB&source=15&SD=Y model at Maplin, but it doesn't mention if it's for round or oval type dishes. Does anyone know where to buy an HD Ready, Octo-LNB -- that's designed for oval satellites -- for a similiar price as the one I just linked to? Thanks.

If it is for a Sky minidish, then there are loads on ebay for that price or less, just click on the ebay link and type in octo LNB.
