    Ku Band on mesh dish

    BSC621-2 C/Ku LNBF

    does the BSC621-2 C/Ku LNBF get both circular and linear types of signals ? I can not seem to find good data on it ? Does C band have linear and circular like the K band birds ? The K birds also require two different LO freq. for different birds... does this LNB give you that flexibility ?

    I read lyngsat and see lots of "free" DCII channels on C band. THey are shown in the "free" color that lyngsat uses. Do you just buy a 4DTV recvr and connect up to an 8ft dish to get going ? Some say that DCII is encrypted and you need a sub ? Help !

    Does DCII on K band or C band have FTA channels ? When I look at, the FTA page says so... I thought DCII was all encrypted ? If there is FTA - then what recvr gets you DCII ? and can I get one recvr for DCII / Analog and DVB ? Curious
