    Broken Freesat Dish

    I have had my Humax recorder fitted up to a sky dish which was left by the previous owner of the house. All was working well until the garden gate broke off the front part which faces the dish itself. I have tried mega strong glue...to no avail. Does this mean I have to now pay to have a new dish installed, or can I do anything to fix this?

    what has a garden gate got to do with a sat dish

    The gate has broken the LNB off.

    How high is the gate! Most dishes are about 13 ft off the ground on the side of the house ??

    Really? My last one and my Mum's one is were about 6-7ft.

    A photo showing the damage would help.

    Most dishes & LNBs are quite strong, so I can't image how you managed to damage it, unless you either damaged the cable or altered the alignment of the dish so it no longer points at the satellite.

    Thanks very much...I will suss this out. Would this be easy enough to fit do you think? (I'm not handless....but I am female lol)

    A Humax Recorder has 2 cable feeds so a ( twin ) quad LNB is required.

    A new type Sky Quad LNB will not fit an old type Sky Dish so get one with an adaptor.

    Thanks everyone for their help. I have now discovered that I would just need the holder bracket for the LNB
    I have searched ebay and google for one. The part number is 13422 QUAD LNB There are many on ebay which looks the same, but none of them give a part number. Does anyone here know if any would be the one I need? Your help is much apppreciated
