I’m looking for a complete motorized ku system. I need a receiver also. Any help with recommendations are appreciated including dish motors and best size dish for wild feeds and such. Thank you
Receiver: Titanium Satellite - Store
Dish: 36 Inch 90 cm Free To Air FTA Satellite Dish & HD LNBF | eBay
OR (I highly recommend this dish, but shipping makes it cost double just because it's so large): 48 Inch 120 cm 1.2 M Offset Satellite Dish & HD SL1PLL LNBF | eBay
Motor: STAB HH-90 MOTORIZED USALS DiSEqC ROTOR FOR 90CM SATELLITE DISH | eBay
Or if you buy the 1.2m dish, you need this larger motor: STAB HH-120 SATELLITE DISH ROTOR USALS DiSEqC MOTORIZED H-H MOTOR FOR 120CM DISH | eBay
Quad shield coax: RG6 /U 3GHz Quad Shielded Coax Cable Directv Satellite TV Wire 85FT to 250'FT | eBay
It's a bit pricey if you must buy brand new starting out, and can't scrounge stuff, but if you amortize the money you lay out one time over what a monthly sub for cable would cost you, it'll "pay" for itself quickly.
Since you're on the East Coast, I would suggest getting a Universal LNBF rather than a Standard one. We get a few satellites from 12.5W to 65W and even 78W that use the lower part of the Ku band, that a standard LNBF can't get. Nothing critical, and if a standard LNBF comes with the dish that's fine. But If you're going to by the LNBF separately, a universal one is worth considering and costs about the same.
Inverto Black makes a fine universal LNB(F) LNBs for satellite dishes. C120 flange LNBs. Primesat single LNB, twin LNB, quad LNB, quatro LNB, octo LNB. 0.1dB LNB. C Band LNB. 40mm. UKCan you recommend a universal LNB?
I have the GeoSatPro UL1-PLL on a 120cm offset and it's been pretty good, and reasonably priced at around $15 and easy to find. I just recently got an Inverto Black Ultra and it seems promising, early testing seems to show a very slightly improved quality over the GeosatPro (about 2 points). But the Inverto LNBFs are rather hard to find in North America (I bought mine during a recent trip to Europe), and I don't think they are worth paying a lot for shipping from overseas.Can you recommend a universal LNB?
