    Best alternative lnb for invacom c120 quad or quattro

    I see now that there seem to a few dealers selling the Invacom quad C120s again - Some seem to be white and others dark grey but is there any difference in these? I will get one just for futureproofing.

    Is something on its way out?

    Thanks - I will do that - maybe the last load of cable I got was not as good as the previous reel. I have one Freesat box on a very short lead which will be very easy to replace without affecting anything else. If that make no difference I will try swapping the 4 outputs around to see if any are...

    Is something on its way out?

    The dish is on our roof with no obstructions at all to the sky so interference or blocking is not the issue - 2.4m should be way overkill here for any channel and was only installed when the signals were very low before the new sats went up. I had thought the Invacoms were almost indestructible...

    Maybe - but what would be a good replacement? Is this likely to be any good? Quad lnb Inverto prime focus c-120 | eBay

    Is something on its way out?

    For many many years I have had my 2,4 PF dish in Valencia and been using a variety of boxes over the years from venerable Pace 2600 Humax Foxsat HD and Manhatten Plaza. We mainly watch Freesat and when the newer sats came on line several years ago found everything came in with ease - even in...

    Channel dropout

    I am in Javea using a 1.2m PF dish with and Inverto single C120 LNB and a Humazx Foxsat HD box. I have just returned here after almost a year away but now have issues with several channels on Freesat. Several channels simply give the "No or Bad signal" message and no indication for the SS or SQ...

    Best alternative lnb for invacom c120 quad or quattro

    Can "Trust" convert an octo lnb to a c120 - that for me would be a great advantage and remove the need for a multi-switch. I currently have an Invacom quad but ideally would like more feeds but as quads seem almost impossible to buy I am looking for good alternatives..

    Best alternative lnb for invacom c120 quad or quattro

    It seems a huge number of people are going to need a C120 LNB when their current ones start to fail. Most installations I know of in the Javea and Valencia areas are using either Quad or Quatro Invacoms or sometimes dual Invacoms or single Inverto pros. It is the lack of 4 output devices that...

    Best alternative lnb for invacom c120 quad or quattro

    With Invacom not making C120 LNBs anymore I am getting a bit worried about what to do if one of my systems starts to have problems. Both have aging C120 LNBs one a twin and one quad - what are people recommending as replacements for use in Spain on larger dishes - i.e. 1.9 or 2.4m?

    Some channels proving to be an issue

    Just had a bit of a scare - I recently changed the cable feed to one of my receivers (a trusty Humax Foxsat HD) as a non Spanish speaking guest was going to use our spare room that has not been used for a good while. On tuning in the receiver gasped as channel after channel reported bad signal...

    Some channels proving to be an issue

    Looks like its down to the dish or LNB then. Any idea of the make of dish? - as said before, a photo would help here. My setup In Javea is using a 25 year old 1.2 PF dish with an Inverto Pro C120 LNB and the original dish feedhorn and gets almost everything with pretty good SS and SQ, The...

    Some channels proving to be an issue

    One other thing you should check if you have not already done so is the condition of the cable. Just a month ago I was losing channels which had previously been strong and it turned out to be that the cable was the problem. The casing fractures in the sun and then water gets into the mesh and...

    Some channels proving to be an issue

    Re CH's last post - Yes that's the easiest way to start - and for us to know if we can help as well :)

    Some channels proving to be an issue

    It looks like you may have a prime focus dish. This is the case where all three arms are the same length and spaced equally and the lnb is held dead in line with the centre of the dish - also the dish will be totally circular rather than a slightly elongated shape. If this is so can you also...

    Some channels proving to be an issue

    Hi and thanks for the above - I think I can consider my problem as "solved" for now as there is little more I can do unless I get Woborny to do a fine turn later in the year once the renting season is over - and even then it may not make that much difference. Re Frenchman - Woborny seems to...
