    I'm 99% certain one of our technically gurues will be able to answer my question. I have a standard Teleco 85cm automatic dish. In order to possibly receive UK television further south will an upgraded LNB help. I'm not expecting a miracle but if it's possible could anyone advise what replacement I would need.
    Many thanks in anticipation.

    When we lived in Southern Spain the minimum size dish for UK TV was either 1200mm or 1600mn

    It's very minimal and also depends on whats fitted now..
    Like having a van re-mapped, you can go from 135bhp to 150bhp but waste of time when your up against a Ferrari. !!

    Sorry for my heading. Predictive text not very good. I don't need TV in Spain as we now concentrate around southern France so just need to know if a better LNB is available rather than the standard issue the system came with.

    Better lnb's are available for house dishes , if van dish is same go for an inverto black ultra . as I have posted elsewhere our snipe sat dish worked as far south as Rocamadour , but it isn't a conventional dish with a separate lnb as you probably know .
