Seemed like you had all the info you needed, and were proceeding in a logical direction.
No big deal, just was hoping for a little further reading from our Green LNB Guru! I always like to read & look at your diagrams, and such, so to proceed in a logical direction without ones logical perception on the subject, seemed not logical captain!
If you want a link, how 'bout to one of our under-appreciated (for FTA) advertizers: DishStore.Net

Those are some Dish 500 variations.
Note the I-adapter accessory, to put a single LNB on a Dish 500
Around my area, you see a lot of Dish 500's with a single LNB mounted into the traditional "Y" adapter.
I know basic concepts of the circular LNBs and sub systems, I used to put in D* back in the mid 90’s, know concept but other than using one for FTA, forget it! Been so long ago in that stuff and also, was not sure on the tech part of these newer LNB’s that E* uses and what is in them, i.e. built in switches.
I will get one or the other to work today if it is the 300 or the 500 with the PLUS or just a standard DP head, got a spare or two of them floating around or the legacy head single LNB head Y Yoke, I will try all and stop on the one that works first. If none we will get out the chain saw and get it to work like it did on my Fortec Star 80CM!
Frankly I have too much here going on with my business to even care how or why Subscriber equipment works now or have the time to want to learn since I really don’t have too much time working with the FTA hobby over business! All I know is that DN get's enough money outta me each month for me not to really care you know!
I left that alone years ago when I hung up that belt & stopped being an installer for the money hungry guys! (well one of them!)
Anyways, the weekends are "Free" time sometimes, and I tinker! I am a simple man that I understand if I am shown or I read about it, works for me! Get it done right and fast the first time or don’t do it at all! :up
Got some time today out by the office with some DN dishes laying around so we will see!
My my, earthquake, if the local TV had nothing it must have been a light one a shaken, did you feel anything there?
But a 5.0, you should have felt it wow! Don’t get squashed out there man!
What runs through a Satellite Guys mind here is: “I hope I don’t have to re-a line that BUD!”
Thanks for the buzz in Anole as always, I pray you stay safe!
