Hey everyone.... I just got my oval dish (replaced my round) So I have my normal directv sat and also the HDNet Sat. I need to buy the Sat C thing from Directv, for Showtime, but my question is..... Is can I use my old LNB from my round dish as my sat c for my showtime..... Or do I need to buy the actual Sat C kit from Directv??

Thanks In advance guys!

You need to buy an actual Sat-C LNB. It is different than the other single and dual output LNBs.


If you have one of the newer oval dishes with the "integrated" multiswitches, you will not need the Sat-C combiner... otherwise you will need the combiner along with the Sat-C LNB.

mine just got installed from Directv last week....

This was what i got.....

18" x 24" Elliptical Dish

Two (2) Dual LNBs

Center Slot for the 3rd SAT C (110º) LNB (optional)

4 x 4 Multi-Switch (use as many as four receivers)


So I have the extra lnb from my old dish.... can I use it?

Your old lnb will not work. You will need to buy one but call DTV and ask for a change of equipment upgrade. I got it for NC plus shipping. Also the first time I did it I got the single lnb sat C kit which I installed myself, but when I got the second one they replace my entire dish and the new dish had the third lnb built in. I do have to dish on my house since I have multiple hdstb's and tivo's.


Good luck.

Just call them and say that you wanna watch Showtime HD and they will give you a sat C lnb. I got a Oval dish with 3 lnb after telling them that I wanted to watch the spanish channels and show hd
