I got my DTN dishes set out during the break in the snow. Both are stationary and stock DTN lnb's. From what I've read from you guy's, and the set up directions for the dish show the lnb setup at vertical. On 97W I'm showing both v and h channels on my Traxis 3500.
It looks like my P* lnb is dead. What do you recommend using on the stock feedhorn?

possible LNBs

There are some surplus Hughes single-output LNBs which should bolt to your feedhorn.
V and H are selected the usual way: 13 and 18 volts.
See first picture, but ignore the feed shown; it's for an elliptical dish.

Second picture shows a DishNetwork FSS bandstacked LNB bolted to another Primestar feedhorn.
(little white one to the right is the original)
V & H both come down the cable all the time, and all you need for power is 18 volts.


I think credit for these pix goes to Tron

I've seen some of the posts on those DN backstacked LNB's. Which dish did they use to find one in the trash?
Corrado
It is the Norsat single output

. . . hmmmmmm . . . it's been a while . . .
Oh, the now-obsolete SuperDish models, both for the 105° and the 121° satellites.
An identifying sticker on the back of the LNB will say: "FSS"

Here's a couple of pictures of the business end of a 121° dish.
The FSS LNB is the one all the way to the left. (pix 1 & 2)

edit: found some pictures of the 105 LNB° (pix 3..6)
it has little nubs or maybe actual fingers sticking out (see pix)
