yes a StarChoice LNB will work for free to air channels. Do you know what size dish it is?

Does it have one ouput on the LNB or 4?

32x18 is the equivalent of a 24" dish...its a little small but will work for the stronger signals

(I have the 75e which is 37x27...equivalent of 32" dish)

oh ok...so you can actually aim at 2 satellites 4 degrees apart :)

As an example, I have had mine at IA6 (93) and IA5 (97) but now its at IA6 and IA8 (89) :)

you would only need one cable coming from the LNB and be able to scan both satellites (if you so desire to aim it at 2 satellites)

Starchoice and most FTA satellites use linear polarization, Dishnetwork use circular polarization.
What were you hoping to get on Echo 6/8/10 ?

Reopening after an assurance from the OP that he is just looking for whatever there is FTA up there!

He is asking for the best FTA satellite to point at for a new user to FTA.

I suggest G10R at 123w

Sorry for thinking what I was thinking :eek: , but we get ALOT of people asking about the same question and 99% of the time they want to steal everything they can. If you have any questions about getting your FTA system up and running you came to the right place :) . They helped me get my system going and now I know what I'm doing too :D .
Good luck getting it going, you will have fun when you do.
