I have a 6' offset dish that uses a Primestar can LNB.
Looking to replace it since Cozi is having troubles.
Would a new one buy me much since it is a 6' solid dish?

Thanks
Happy New Year

I'm very impressed with the Inverto Pro Black C120 LNB. Voltage switched polarity and available in single or dual output models. I recall that it only took about 7 days to arrive from Europe EBay seller.

6' dish on 103w should be more than adequate. If the current LNB is working and not drifting frequency, likely won't gain much by upgrading to a different LNBF. Maybe gain a dB of SNR?

Other Ku LNBs I could use instead of the one I have mounted to.
The one I have mounted now is from a Primestar dish. The with the big sticker is also from a Primestar dish and has both H and V outputs.
Any idea what the specs would be on the these?

ken2400 maybe question is stupid, but.... Why do not you use out-of-shelf LNBF for your Channel Master, for example IBU? It will perform not worse than LNBs you have shown earlier.

It was a connection issue at the LNB. The hard wire did not look too bad BUT I cleaned it up with an emery board. I also found it a bit loose. This time I used a pliers to tighten it.

I would like to keep the factory feedhorn. When the weather is better I would like to try a off-the-shelf LNBF and see how it works outs.
It is nice to see these old Primestar LNBs just keep working. Anyone know what the specs would be on them?
The use here is for a 24/7 operation.

Thanks
