Can anyone tell me which is the best LNB to use with a Fraccaro Penta 85 cm dish. I believe that there are cases where the LNB makes the difference between good reception and no reception.

I'm using the little inverto silver tech on my Penta installations and they are a nice combination.

A couple of our site advertisers stock them.

the lower the db gain the better
so a 0.3 will be better than a 1.3

I have installed a Penta dish combined with an Mti Supreline 0.2db lnb.

The combination produced very good results :D
