Can I Use Any LNB On My Dish?

As a general rule, you can’t use an LNB unless it’s designed for the dish you have.

If you use the wrong LNB, the dish will focus the signals in the wrong place and you’ll get no reception.

DIRECTV and DISH have specific LNBs that are designed to pull in signals from their specific fleets of satellites.

What is LNB type?

A low-noise block downconverter (LNB) is the receiving device mounted on satellite dishes used for satellite TV reception, which collects the radio waves from the dish and converts them to a signal which is sent through a cable to the receiver inside the building.

Are all satellite dishes the same?

The United States and Canada are pretty much the only places in the world where pay-TV services use multiple satellites at the same time. In the rest of the world you basically are aiming at one satellite at a time. So, US satellite dishes have multiple LNBs crammed onto a single dish, as you’ve no doubt seen.
