If another lnb has beaten it let us know.
    ymt my dish is a prime focus dish as it is very difficult to get big offset dish in west Africa. I have black ultra and the mti but my problem is how you modified yours that is why I would have loved to see pictures of your modified mti. I did modiffy the mti quad by cutting off the head and used super glue to attach a scalar ring of a fuji star gold lnb to it. I want to know if thats what you did or you just cut the head off and attach no scalar rings/feedhorn to it? I have mti ap82-xt2n that I want to modify but I wait for your answer or picture before I do that.

    Yh I did same before but now I cut the head of the mti and don't attach the fuji head to it becos that has given me more signal. But whether or not to use the fuji head after cutting the mti will depend on which option works better for you. I tried attaching pix but it's not working. What is your dish type and which European and middle east satellites do you pick.

    guys im thinking of changing my Inverto black twin LNB

    I need a triple LNB but after searching maybe only Quad LNB's are available, do i just seal off the 4th LNB sonnection?

    was looking advice whether i should stick to the Inverto black or try a smart titanium, thomson, Philex, Icecrypt or Maclean for best results ?

    set up 1.1 metre diseq motorised

    J, hard to beat the Inverto Black Ultra High Gain lnb, i have a fella set up with the twin of this version not far from you on a 1.1 and all the popular sats are coming in no problem. Nearly sure there`s a quad output as well.

    The Inverto Black Ultra is very popular.
    I use a twin output myself & have found it to be excellent.
    If you just want 3 outputs then get a quad & simply blank off one of the connections.

    Quatro Lnb is a completely different beast. A Quad Lnb, delivers 4 similar outputs on all connections,
    a Quatro Lnb provides for High and Low band switching, plus H & V polarities. They are not interchangeable.
    As previous advise, just cap off the spare output.

    Well....what an amazing thread, i have just had the pleasure of reading through.....took me a couple of hours too.

    Well done, and thank you to everyone involved, especially @Cosworth4x4 - not easy doing all that testing up a ladder in the cold and wind.

    @cosworth4x4 - i wouldnt mind that Gibertini feedhorn if you still have it btw.

    I have stayed with my favourite mti highline twin (mti ap82-xt2n) over the years in spite of the fact that it is expensive. i have seen test made and other lnbs like the black ultras reported to be better. I will not blame those who conducted those test because their problem is they failed to uncover the secrete of the mti, which i am sharing now through experience. When testing the mti, it may give one for instance 55% and another lnb may give 58% on same setup and transponder. Then the one conducting the test concludes that the lnb that gave 58% is better and we can blame him. The secret with the mti is when one goes to check the difficult transponders, they will be fine on the mti but the other lnb that gave 58% and claimed to a better as a result of that higher percentage reading will struggle with the weaker transponders. This is the secret associated with the mti highline, which my favourite is the twin. However it is important to add that i dont trust the new mti highline lnbs with the yellow stickers.
