    it's not about the dish, it's about the lnb.

    check lyngsat for "interesting" channels as per your personal taste.

    yes there is, do a search on here for "duel LNB" and if you want one PM irdeto2enginner he sells them, but you will need a large prime focus dish. A small off-set dish won't work with that type of LNB, and there also far too small for C-band

    if you want lnb for offset dishes just use the normal feehorn with an offset scalar ring.

    W3A has gtv as 17 pay channel and a few other fta channels,
    mostly french.
    For intel use dual ku and c - lnb.

    I think your forgetting, he's talking about a combined Ku // C-band unit, and while it's quite possable to fit a off-set scalar ring, his dish will also have to of a suitable size to accomadate the C-band signals.
    So if he has a 2 meter [or bigger] off-set dish, he's in business, if not then forget all about useing a small off-set dish.
