hi everyone,
i need some help with my installation, i have just installed a fixed 80 cm triax dish receiving hotbird on 13e. i was wondering is it possible to put another lnb to receive a different sattellite. If yes would i have slightly move the dish with an additional lnb or no.
could someone please help me.

You shouldn't need to move your dish at all depending on which satellites your after, just add a multi-LNB holder onto one side of your current LNB (for example, ~6 degrees to the left (looking from the front) and slightly higher to get Astra 1 at 19.2E), or if you're after more than two or three satellites, it's best to start a dish farm (unless the missus objects!!!) or motorise your current dish.... :)

You want the Triax TD-Flexiblock or the TD-Duoblock 6 degree bracket, they replaces the LNB holder on the TD dish and the LNBs sit either side of the centre. Pictures Here

Depending on your installation and the post where you've placed or set your dish, if you have a shortage of place for setting another dish, you can use a motorized dish instead of 2 or 3 dishes. In my point of view it could be also economical. Or there are also 2 different turnip-like dishes attached to each other but in 2 different directions.
