The Gbox 3000 would be nice, but I think I'll see if I can pick up a cheap-o analog receiver first to play around with this things. I'm planning on keeping it C only. I get pretty much all the Ku I want with my 39" motorized setup.
I out my name down on the lnbf pre-order from SatelliteAV. I assume (hope) I can use that with the dish.

That will allow you to still get analog C band feeds that are still there.

Oh, and thanks for the PB Blaster tip. The stuff worked great. I still broke a few bolts (but I was planning on buying new ones anyhow). I didn't have any problems getting any of them free. Although, the bolts closest to the center of the dish that were connecting the sections were afwul to get out. It was too tight for the socket wrench and I could only get about 1/4 turn out of the bolt before having to reseat the crescent wrench.

I resorted to sawzall and grinder for a couple of bolts which were in a lot spot which held water inside the dish.
The rest were very cooperative after applying PBblaster.
Glad to hear it worked well for you, too! - :up

When I reassemble, I'm using quality bolts, anti-seize compound, and drilling a water relief hole!
Worth looking at your dish/mount and see if it has any similar stupid spots. :)

Actually, I think both my dishes have a like-need for ventilation. :cool:
