do you think by adding scalar rings to the already existing ones on the lnb , can i get more channels?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Depends on a number of factors

How good the dish is in performance and focal accuracy

How well the feed is matched to the dish for illumination

Do you have a prime focus dish or an offset ?
Is the dish with purpose designed feed or LNB with integral feed?

ok i could not get most of your reply but anyhow, is there anything called like " time cycles" for the lnb
mean that can i get some channels with the same dish in the morning and then kiss 'em goodbye say in the noon time?

Again it depends

The ability to receive a signal at all times is dependent on a number of factors
1) could be an FTA transmission, then it scrambles for certain copyright reasons - eg Canale5 Italy
2) The satelite itself may be moving relative to the earth, in any direction (up down, left, right) and so the focal point of the dish may not be correct at all times
3) The satellite could also have an elliptical orbit, meaning the density of signal may change on a daily basis
4) The broadcaster may request a reduction to the power to the particular transponder at certain times, to prevent the signal being received outside the designated area
5) The ground conditions near the dish may alter during the day, air temperature and/or humidity, which affects the dish parabola and/or LNB noise figure
6) Someone may be hanging out washing in front of the dish ?
