    Using a wideband LNB with a Freesat box

    Hi All I have just bought a new Freesat box and it clearly indicates the advantages of a wideband LNB. I have the box going with the current quad LNB but its damaged (the horn cover is rotting due to UV). I decided to change the LNB to a wideband one (SKY EL023) however it produced no pics...

    SkyQ lnb and tv freesat tuner

    Will newer internal freesat tuners in LG TVs work with a SkyQ LNB?. The old Manhattan freesat box certainly doesn't.

    Question Sky-Q LNB and Samsung Q95T one connect box

    Hi, Newb to this. I've moved to a new house that has a Sky-q lnb attached to the top of the house. I don't know how old it is or what version it is. I wanted to get Freesat on my Q95T. Should the one connect box be able to use the Sky-Q lnb or will I have to buy one of these new Freesat boxes?

    Question Sky Q LNB

    Hi All, I'm thinking of upgrading to Sky Q. I currently have SkyHD with an octo LNB. Will the new Sky Q LNB still support that? I'll be going for a main box and one mini. I understand that only the main box connects to the dish and the mini is wifi. I'd like the dish to connect to both...

    I have got an LG C9 65 inch TV and mostly use the internal Freesat tuner (rotten terrestrial signal here).

    LNB change price?

    I'm probably gonna bin Sky Q off at the end of the contract (few months time). The dish has the usual wideband LNB, I have a TV that has integrated Freesat but I know this won't work without a LNB change. Gonna get quotes soon to swap it over but any ideas of what kinda price to expect please...

    LNB Question

    Are there any visible signs that an LNB needs replacing? I am trying to setup a motorised receiver with USALS that I have purchased and I can't get a signal. If I check the lnb the flay side that faces the dish is bulging a little - I'm not sure if this suggests replacement is needed? I had...

    Sky Q with no LNB?

    Hi there, Excuse my lack of knowledge, but do you still need to install a new LNB in order to get Sky Q? I saw somewhere that you can fit an adapter to the back to the aerial instead. I live in a block of flats and the building manager has been ignoring my emails since January about when...
