    Question Astra 2D

    I need to replace my LNB on my Aris dish as it is three or more years old
    and the signal quality has reduced a lot after some recent heavy storms !

    What is the difference between an Invacom C120 Quad and Quattro please!

    First try drying it out and then remake the F connectors after cutting a few inches off the coax. Water in the cable loses you a lot.

    I assume you have tried re-aligning the dish as storms also mean high winds.

    Quad. A universal LNB with 4 independent outputs.
    (Each STB believes it has got its own LNB)


    Quattro. An LNB with 4 dedicated outputs.
    (It does not respond to H/V voltage switching or 22kHz band switching.)
    1) Lo Band - Horizontal Polarisation
    2) Lo Band - Vertical Polarisation
    3) Hi Band - Horizontal Polarisation
    4) Hi Band - Vertical Polarisation
    Intended to drive a much larger distribution system where a distribution box then selects the relevant output.


    BTW there are Octos now. An LNB with 8 independent outputs.
    (Each STB believes it has got its own LNB)

    Octo

    An octo is just a quattro with an 8 way switch inside.
