Hello, Has any one used this 118.7 dish pro lnb with CM 84E dish, which is 40x30. This lnb (118.7&119)was used in superdish repointing kit. It can be mounted directly on the feed bar which is 21" long end to end. I got lot of info about this antenna through this site, but did not see this combination. I want to use only this lnb, so dish skewing is not important.

Thanks.

I would think as long as the lnb is located at the focal point of the reflector it should work fine, a dish is a dish is a dish.

yeah you should be fine. Since the 118/119 LNB is essence the same orbital slot (yeah I know its .3 degrees apart) it should work fine. I've slapped both DBS & KU LNB's on a 84e dish and it worked fine

No, dish's focal point has no bearing on this. Simply place the 118.7 lnb at the focal point that the original Channel Master lnb was at. You may have to move it slightly in or out for the best location.

The only time a focal point would be in effect would be if you tried to put 2 LNB's on it. The spacing between them is different than if on a D500+ (or 1000+)
