Kit used, old Zone 2 $ky/Freesat dish, ISS Original LNB holder, Triax TD series multi LNB kit, new RG6 patch cables, 3 IBU LNBs ( There's a dual feed went a missing in the house somewhere, 4 specialised coach anchors and matched plugs by Rawl for cladded walls and one mug of Yorkshire Tea (Best tea bags money can buy).

EDIT: (missed diseqc switch) I used a four port Titanium switch I had in the spares box and a reclaimed cover from another switch.

Today just reminded me how absolutely terrible the revised Zone 2 mount for these dishes are, the "n" shaped wall mount is far too thin to have one long side missing completely, I ended up tightening it until the "u" clamps started squishing the "L" pole before I stopped being able to twist the pole round (like cranking a handle motion thus making the dish non level).
