About this deal

I just ran a little SikaFlex EBT+ sealant around the sliding part’s top edge so all should be OK now. I really hope this review helps others fix their own lnbs as it is incredibly easy and no experience is needed whatsoever! If your dish is fitted with a Standard (Single, Quad or Octo) LNB and has two cables that connect to your Box, you will be able to record one channel while you watch another, or record two channels while you watch a recording you made earlier. There’s a slight design flaw with the slide-down water shield for the cables; water can run down the body and get inside the sliding shield. The wideband outputs can receive a wide range of satellite frequencies from multiple satellites and down converting them to a lower frequency band for distribution.

Multi-function intelligent switching design - This Hybrid LNB has 2 x wideband ports and 2 x legacy ports will allow you to keep your existing Sky HD or FreeSat Boxes working from one satellite dish as well as the new popular Sky Q 1TB/2TB box which is powered from the 2 x Wideband LNB ports. LNB – namely a Low-Noise Block is a receiving device mounted on satellite dishes used for satellite TV reception, which collects the radio waves from the dish and converts them to a signal which is sent through a cable to the receiver inside the building. Bought this as our existing standard LNB meant we could only record 1 channel and watch 1 channel simultaneously on our new 4k freesat box.

Depending on how many leads you have to the TV for freesat, most hybrid LNBs will have 2 outputs for "Freesat" so you can run 2 TVs from the LNB with an additional cable however if you have a freesat box and want to record it may need 2 leads. SUPERIOR CONSTRUCTION:Made with approved and certified materials to provide the strongest signal strength.

I took several photos of the LNB, paying attention to the angle it was positioned with relation to the dish and arm. I snapped the old plastic peg to take the old lnb off easier and I used the screwdriver to then pop it out from the underside. There used to be an FAQ pinned to the top of this forum which had that as one of its information points, but this has now disappeared. System settings/box reset/ reboot box resolved the issue ie now reports wide band lnb and successfully recorded 4 channels.

Read this for info on how to receive broadband/ internet without a telephone or landline at your property. The quad outputs are capable of receiving four specific satellite signals each and down converting them to a lower frequency for distribution. Superb friendly service received from Andy in assisting with setting up a new Tivusat box for a relative, out of hours as well ! The LNB utilises a combination of low-noise amplifier, local oscillator, frequency mixer, and intermediate frequency amplifier.
