Firstly let me say .. I hope this is being posted in the correct forum .. Please excuse me if not ..

I've just got my hand's on a 30 starChoice dish with Linear LNB "Part Number 150478" I'm going after true FTA will use my Pansat 2700 .. figure i'll head after 121W .. my question .. well .. i'm sure this is just the start .. but my 1st question .. I'm not sure of the setting I would use in Pansat .. as in frequency, LNB type and so on .. Now I have no issues in reading .. but have no idea where to even start ...

TIA

As stated above, nothing really useful on 121w Ku. There is some C-Band, but for those channels you would need a 6 foot dish and C-Band LNB.

I have the same dish. It works pretty good.
I would recommend 123W. After you get that setup, you may want to motorize :D
As far as that LNB goes, I have one of these dishes with the Starchoice LNB... Mine was a standard LNB (not bandstacked) so if yours is the same you should be able to set it up like normal...

single - 10750

LNB skew is important, so make sure you skew your LNB on the dish when you are aligning it.

The stacked LNB looks like a flashlight

The H polarity transponders is different but would work fine for 123W since most channels are vertical
