    Hi
    I have just bought a phillips universal quad lnb as my old lnb is on the way out. Is it a case of unplugging the old one and replacing it, or is there more to it.

    cheers lee

    Depending on your dish type, you may have to use an adaptor (which should have been provided with your new LNB) to fit the feed arm. Other than that, there's nothing to it.

    Just turn the mains supply to your digibox off first!

    Cheers thanx for that but i have just noticed that the new one has an off set which has been set to get it in the box what should it be at also the distance away from the dish seems further with the new adaptor.

    The offset won't make too much difference to the signal but try rotating the lnb slightly and watch the signal strength bars in the menu. Just make sure the lnb is pushed fully home into the feed arm and you should be OK.
