    does anyone know if the Octo LNB will fit a standard dish.

    I currently have a quad LNB and could easily adjust my set-up so i could get a free Octo LNB at Sky`s expense

    The Octo LNB that Sky installs will naturally fit their own minidishes. How do you mean adjust your setup to get a free Octo?

    Still some doubt over what SKY would consider a suitable setup to get a free OCTO LNB under the standard install.

    Would it require all boxes to be using a PAY smartcard/multiroom or is a mixture of PAY and Freesat card acceptable, would a genuine FTA receiver be ignored since it has nothing to do with SKY?

    I've got a Sky Quad LNB made by Thompson and it's fitted to an 85CM Dish as I had nothing but problems with Sky Mini Dishes when it rained

    All I had to do was take the Sky adapter Bracket off the LNB so as long as the LNB has an adapter bracket fitted to it should not be that hard to put on a normal Dish.

    Had an email back from Sky about an OCTO LNG they said it would be available after sometime after the start of Sky HD.

    I think definitely priority would go to customers paying extra in terms of addtional multiroom subs and customers with a genuine need, ie, single feed customers using communal dishes before they start to install these as a matter of course. Don't forget an Octo is almost twice the cost of a Quad LNB so they would need some financial incentive.
