I was looking on eBay and saw an advertisement for a toroidal Dish Network SuperDish. Is this really using a SuperDish or is this just someone trying to get better search results? Is it possible to make one of your own or a kit to turn a SuperDish into a toroidal?

The problem with a toroidal dish is that the signal polarity into the LNBF is reversed. A Dish Network LNBF can't be used with it. If it is one of those Wavefrontier dishes, you have to use their LNBFs with it. They work but only support legacy switches.

I think he put "superdish" as in its a SUPER dish hehe. The main reflector doesnt look like a superdish from dish network.

That is a typical T55 Toroidal, not a Dish SuperDish.

I noticed where it did not have SuperDish on the reflector so that made me wonder about it.
