I can't be much help to you on this one, Long Hair. My BV solid is up and tracking the arc very well but I still haven't done my underground cabling yet to run it into the house.
That being the case, 95% of my testing of that dish has been with a DVB-S std definition receiver....never had an S2-capable receiver hooked to it and it is C-band only (C-2 LNBF), so I can't tell you about it's Ku abilities. I know others have seen good performance from their BVs with some Ku.
My impression is this dish may be a little small for the high-FEC S2 signals, but maybe someone else can let us know for sure.
That being said you need to go get it anyway......or let me know where it's at and I will.
