3=Octagon SX88 SE 4K UHD

I mainly use the TM5302HD as it is highly sensitive for weak feeds with the 0.2 Inverto Black Ultra I do not reccomend this set up for general viewing as the strong transponders overload the tuner = no signal on some.

The Blind Scan on the 2 Octagons is very good but as I cannot seperate some strong transponders on 10E/9E as it needs a lot of editing due to the inflexibility of the Blind Scan (You cannot choose the scan frequencies) this is only possible with the TM5302HD.

All Tests are with the OP Gibertini 100 XP.

Lnb's tested recently (Universal Single LNB's)
1/Inverto Black Ultra 0.2
2/Inverto IDLT412-Ultra OPN
3/Inverto IDLP-410-Premium OPN
4/Golden Media 201 +

In order of best performance for weak signals.

I did have 3 x TM5302HD & 1 x TM5502 now down to just 2,excellent for feed hunting with the following set up,

If you are going to use this receiver for freesat via a mini dish then the Golden Media or Inverto IDLT412-Ultra OPN Lnb will be a better choice to prevent tuner overload.
The one I have is definitely not a first edition, it's quite a size isn't it in comparison.

I am using it at the mo' and apart from Kerrang and other music channels overloading hasn't been an issue, and I am blown away by the quality of picture.

I am used to using cheap Chinese knockoffs.

I am using the latest Inverto LNB with PLL technology. I think I get a stronger signal with it.

I haven't tried any feed hunting but will probably get around to it. I have a 1.1M dish but I live in the North East, may as well be the North Pole.
