How do you know whether you need a 10750KHz or 113000KHz LNB?

If it matters, it'd be for Optus C1

Hey allstarnz,
Is this for mediaprotal tv server? If so and you're going to be using it with other LNBs on a diseqc switch best make sure the LNBs are all the same because tv server only allows setting one LOF for all LNBs not per LNB. I've been more than happy with the ex sky sharp 11300 ones; you can get them off trade me for about $18. If you buy 3 at once you might even get a discount :-)

All the current services on C1 that you can see (ie Optus Aurora assuming you have a suitable Iredto Card) are at 12.4GHz or above, the lowest Foxtel transponder is at 12.3GHz, therefore an 11.3GHz LNB is fine as it is for D1 services.

You can also use a 10.75GHz LNB the choice is yours. I personally prefer 11.3 as it places all transponders in the lower part of the IF thus reduces cable loss issues. A 10.75GHz LNB will allow you to access the low band transponders that D3 will bring to 156E but thats not planned for 2-3yrs yet.

thanks for the responses.  I just wanted to make sure of my presumption that either or would do.

I'm just scoping out pricing at the moment more than anything for now.
