Here is a new LNB being shown at the Revolution Show...

Its a Reverse Band Legacy, which allows for you to add a dish for the internationals at 95 degrees.

Add a dish for the internationals.
So it would require 2 dishes to get the 4k and internationals .... not just this newest LNB using the dish that goes with it to get it all ?

I bet the 2 on the right are inputs.
Nah, they're undoubtedly outputs ...

The frequency plan for the two new LNB outputs is as I posted awhile ago on another thread. Based on a transponder survey readout from an AIM meter with the latest database update which included the Reverse Band.

The tan colored cells at the bottom of the graphic ("ports 5 and 6") represent the spectrum of the two new coax outputs.

95W will have to be diplexed in on the new 18v line one as shown.

And the next question here is ... What type of ext. multiswitch will this RB legacy LNB connect to?

I would think a swm8/16 switch, no?

Don't think the old analog SWiM switches can handle Reverse Band ...

DIRECTV showed off a digital DSWM-30 ext. multiswitch at a recent Revolution conference I think last year.

So that might be it. ...

Of course the SWM8/SWM16 can handle reverse band. It leaves the LNB at the exact same frequency range as Ka A & B bands, and the internal multiswitch is connected to all six inputs.

Oh, great then;

As it sure would help matters with the seemlessness of installing this LNB if the current installed base of legacy analog SWiM multiswitches could be used by just re-tasking the two flexports.

Though running now six or two more coax lines in addition to an already existing four (or three coax pairs in all) would be a cumbersome and unsightly mess, I see this LNB mainly for MDU single dish solutions.

Now DIRECTV just needs something like this on steroids for the AK-HI dish and they'll be all set I guess. ...

Yep it looks like that DSWIM30 will be a part of international integration and 4k reverse band setups. Legacy reverse band LNB w/ DSWIM30 switch and a world direct diplexer. The diplexer will run into port 5 of the switch with both the RB and world direct dish connecting to the diplexer. Super happy to finally see a solution.

You are correct

DSWM 30 for those who havent seen one.
Thanks for posting this photo ...

Humm ...

Guess I need to correct that graphic a bit, as I assumed earlier at the time that the new outlet for the odd RB transponders would naturally use 13v as a continuation of the old 2-level 18v/13v legacy voltage signaling.

But now I see both even and odd RB tps. ports on the DSWM-30 multiswitch are labeled as "18v."
