...felt I was missing out so I've ordered a "Technomate TM-8 GOLD Super High Gain Full HD & 3D 0.1DB Universal Octo LNB"

Will buy some (a lot of) Webro WF100 cable this week (got a reel lined up).

Had a look at my dish yesterday - noticed that one of the wall bracket welds has snapped in the recent high winds, so I just tested then gently tightened the screws on the wall bracket into the brick.

My pole is 2"/50mm diameter x 8' in height and has two wall brackets - should I get the bracket replaced and a 3"/75mm pole? ...or should I get a third wall bracket fitted? (perhaps whilst the current one is being welded before re-fitting?)

Have you room to add a third bracket without disturbing the one with the broken weld ? If so it may stop you having to remove the dish altogether while you get the broken one fixed or replaced avoiding an alignment.

...just been out to measure the distances and there is space above for a horizontal only bracket (above the existing vertical/horizontal wall bracket with the weld break) and there is space below for a vertical/horizontal wall bracket (below the existing vertical/horizontal wall bracket with the weld break but above the existing horizontal only wall bracket).

So that's what I will do (unless anyone has a portable welding kit, suitable for standing on a roof whilst welding)

The brackets are 12" in width (on the wall) and 24" in depth off the wall.

Tried out the Golden Media twin a couple of times and both times the signal has been slightly lower than my Inverto Single both for normal channels and feeds. For reference on Sky News 0.8W (12418 V 28000) I get 15.3-15.7db through my TM-5402 M3 but 14.6 for the Golden Media. Neither could pick up the Gibraltar snooker at the weekend, the odd spike but couldn't lock

My setup is TD110 with 20m Coax run SE England

Is it likely to be issues with the LNB alignment? Given it's yielding the same results both times i'm thinking not but I can tweak the lnb angle slightly, is there a guide to make sure it's aligned precisely?

Specifically for feeds is there any other LNBs I can try, don't mind if it's a single/quad just after the best performance on weaker feeds
