      Which Octo LNB

      I thinking of getting an octo LNB as i have sky+ running off 2 connectors, a freesat bedroom box off another one and i want to get my HD Freesat box up and running but will want another 2 connectors - too many for the current quad LNB

      I'm a bit unsure as to what type of octo i need to get, looking around it seems some are for sky dishes but others won't fit a sky dish.

      I'm not really sure what type of dish i have (size or model) as it was already on the house. I did ask the engineer who installed our sky+ whether he was going to put up a new dish but he said no that one is fine and up to date

      You best bet is to pay a bit extra and get a new dish. Octo LNB's are heavier, so may put a strain on an old dish. There's lots of suppliers on Ebay that sell dishes and LNB's. You don't need to spend a lot of money - I bought a cheap one on Ebay and it works fine.

      The offical Sky ones are manufactured by Wistron, I believe, but be aware there are two types as seen here: Sky Octo LNBs.

      You can get other makes but make sure they come with the appropriate adapter for your Sky minidish.
