Do we have information on the LNB that can pick up both of these satellites on the same dish? I am hearing that the Invacom QPH-031 will pick them up, but I can not figure out if this is dishpro compatible or legacy compatible.

As of right now we dont.. The Inivacom LNB wont work as the signals on the FSS Side is Circular instead of linuear. (im hearing this from John H and P smith :) )

Here is web site for all listed satellites for dish network. It will tell the channels on each satellite. http://ekb.dbstalk.com/129list.htm
It has the 118 satellite listed, which has some HD Local listed that are not on air yet.

Actually, Invacom works fine.

Although the FCC license grants them both linear and circular broadcasting, the FSS broadcasts for DN are in 11.7~12.2 (according to the filing) which is FSS Linear band. There is no license granted allowing 12.2~12.7 Circular band broadcasting as it would interfere with Echo7.

I'm watching 118 right now using a 30" dish and Xtreme LNBF. I know people watching it with an Invacom also. The new Dish plus's seem to have as their central LNB a circular/linear lnbf much like the QPH031.

I can't get how your Invacom linear part could get circular signal if 118.75W have 11 pairs, and only one transponder alone ?
I'm do not count circular part, but if your signal is high and your receiver can accept IF in 450...950 MHz range, well could be.

I scanned 118.7 with my Invacom quad on the linear side (10750) and got transponders but really low quality (60 on the Coolsat...63 is stable picture)

The above picture is the only free item on there :D

could be some pairs have one tpn with mux other is free ?
as you can imagine two tpn using same freq will create a lot interences for linear LNBF

Mine shows low quality, but is suprisingly watchable.

I get no pixelization at all on my stb even though my quality hovers in the 20% range. Don't for the life of me know why - perfectly watchable. My wife is curious too, because I can't watch 97W with that kind of quality. It's odd.

Here are some Broadlogic Spectrum Analyzer plots. Two are using a circular dbs lnbf at 119 degrees. It shows both Echostar 7 and part of AMC 16. The four signals on the left are on AMC 16. The others are on Echostar 7. The rest of AMC 16 is cut off because the dbs lnbf can't tune any lower. The third plot is of AMC 16 with a linear lnbf. It looks like crap because the circular signals overlap one another when using a linear lnbf.

Thanks, but for those of us unfamiliar with Spectrum Analyzers...

Could you explain exactly what that means?
