    I think you need a bigger dish for these to work properly, 80cm plus, I read somewhere.
    I'm no expert though.

    bigger the better,
    but that LNB will be at the sacrifice of any other LNB

    Cool. Got 1 meter dish. Would a diseqc switch work with it? Ive got a sky dish for my 28.2 feed.

    I dont know, its complicated, those type of LNBs have an inbuilt diseqc of sorts,
    whether it would be capable of cascading or not is another story

    Interesting. Its on amazon for £26. Worth a punt and return if it does not work with a switch

    Found on there website:

    Q: What is a wideband LNB?
    A:
    With a wideband LNB having only one local oscillator (e.g. 10.4GHz), and captures the full frequency spectrum of the satellite (300MHz to 2350MHz) which are delivered over two outputs from the LNB. One output carries all the vertically polarized signals whilst the second output carries all the horizontally polarized outputs. Whilst most of the current multiswitches on the market do not accept a wideband input the newer multiswitches such as newer Unicable switches are capable of accepting this as their input.

    Caution: Wideband LNBs are not conventional twin LNBs. Wideband LNBs can be connected to a Unicable multiswitches that is designed for this purpose, or, if connected directly to a receiver, only with a suitable tuner.
    Q: What does Unicable mean?
    A:
    Unicable is a new method for distributing satellite television. Several receivers (currently up to 32 in accordance with standard EN 50607) can be connected to only one single chain which is not possible with a conventional satellite distribution (star distribution in multi-switch mode). For more information about Unicable, see www.inverto.tv/what-is-unicable-2

    I think that's just a FAQ list of Q&A, this is a monoblock lnb, not a wideband or unicable.
    It has a built in DiSEqC 1.0 switch & uses ports A, B & C.
