What wideband LNBs are best for this dish? What is the max depth size LNB that can be fitted where the secondary reflector support arms are? Will the Inverto LNBs fit at those points on the LNB rail?

Astra 2 LNB would be at L-9.6
Astra 1 LNB at L-0.6
Hotbird LNB at R5.5
Eutelsat 9 LNB at R9.5*

*I think this LNB would have to be at R10 but should still pick up the widebeam channels there.

You need to use the LNB's designed for that type of dish, as the signals coming off the second reflector will be 180 degrees out of phase,(like from a normal satellite dish) this may or may not cause problems at the receiver with some transponders or satellites.

That is only true if the satellite you are trying to pick up has circularly polarising. Channels with horizontal and vertical polarising should be fine. I had one of these dishes about 9 years ago but the only place it could be mounted with its in box wall mount had a building in the way where I used to live and the installers couldn't get the dish to stay where it was with a pole above the roof mount so the dish never got used and I ended up selling it. In the flat where I now live this dish should work fine(I hope). I just can't remember what the clearing is between the LNB rail and the supporting arms under the main reflector.

My T55 just setup for fun! This isn't my main system. I prefere to use my 60cm motorised system.

28e - very strong
23e - rebel TV can sometimes be weak! Stronger TPs such as OCKO are fine all the time.
19e - very strong
13e - very strong
9e - very strong
5e Zeonbud T2MI works with black ultra lnb! But a weak signal
1w black ultra lnb required as this is a weaker sat
5w - Italian & French multistream works fine

Using atemio diseqc 1.1 on Octogan Sf4008

Thanks Mike. Looks like you got that dish maxed out there.
