    Inverto LNB's

    Hi all from sunny south Tenerife.
    We have a 3 metre offset dish, fitted with an Inverto Quad LNB, feeding Ikusi modulators(BBC1/2, ITV1, C4 & C5 & Sky News ) and 4 Sky Pace DN430 boxes for Sky Sports 1/2 & RTE 1&2.
    Reception of these channels using the Quad is excellent including those which have recently transfered to 2F.
    To get more outputs to feed additional receivers, instead of going to a multiswitch system, I have tried an Inverto Octo LNB which has an almost identical specification. With the exception of C5, the octo LNB gives good reception of all other existing channels. The Octo LNB was set up in exactly the the same position as the Quad & even tweeking position results in a totally blank screen for Ch5, when reverting back to the Quad all channels are received.
    Can anybody explain why this is happening & if possible suggest a solution to this problem?

    This may be the fact that C5 is on 2F, and its reception on your dish where you are is on a knife edge, due to C5 being on the 2F UK beam..

    So moving to a Octo LNB may be enough to knock out the channel - I have found Octos to be "perform worse" compared to Quads or Twins or Singles.
