Actually what looks to be almost identical to the Orby dish, even right down to the 11.7-12.2 GHz linear LNBF.What would be needed to use my directv slimline with orby I would find it hard to believe it would not be possible because orbys dish looks almost identical
Yes from what I read I figured I would have to replace lnb any good suggestions on lnb and signal meter to know if I have any signal I have already set the dish to the 230 azimuth and 39 elevation that's suppose to be right for my areaMore than the dish- LNBs are not interchangeable. Some would work, some won’t.

Congrats! I modded an old slimline for Orby as well a few months back. I had signal within 10 minutes of mounting. Glad I kept the dish around after canceling DirecTV years ago!Ok so I was sucessful in finding signal with the slimline dish and linear lnb made to fit the old 18 inch round directv dish which slipped right in had signal within 5 minutes so yes it can be done takes a little math to get skew right since its setup different from orby dish but yeah it can be done.
I measured where the original lnbf was and used a standard FTA lnbf with a universal mount. Dish is at zero skew, lnbf is skewed. It is mounted on top of the pole for my motorized ku dish. I rushed putting this up during really cold weather, which bothers my hands horribly, so it likely can be dialed in a little better but so far it has worked great.Just wondering how you went about it i used a linear lnb that looked identical to the original directv lnbs and skewed the dish itself did you skew the dish or zero the dish and skew the lnb.
