Just looking for advice on LNBs for a multi-sat set-up on a zone 2 dish. I currently have 2 LNBs one on 28.2e (Sky Visiblewave made by Labgear) and 19.2e (old Inverto eco single).

I want to swap the 19.2e for a quad and add another one or two single LNB(s) to the dish. From reading I understand that the Sky LNBs have a feedhorn designed for the shape of the mini-dishes and have a narrower neck than standard.

But I notice from purchasing a Visibleware Sky LNB the feedhorn is round unlike the Zinwell oval ones therefore would a (supposed) 0.1db universal LNB such as Opticum quad perform better than the Visibleware 0.5db (or a Zinwell) or is there likely to be little to no difference?

Thanks!

@giraffe if your in the U.K. I wouldn't worry about the LNBs being non $ky type, I use "normal" Inverto Black Ultras on my Zone 2 multi LNB setup.

@Ghostleader thanks for your post and picture, OK great will not worry about about them - your very neat set-up is exactly what I'm looking for.

As an aside every time I see dishes setup with the wall mount above the dish I think of Gonzo from the muppets!
