Hey Guys, 

I'm setting up a Zinwell ZKF-DJ21 dual-LNB to use for freeview.

I read an old post saying that the H and V polarisations are reversed - can anyone shed any light?  How should it be positioned in the LNB bracket

They also said it's crap as a dual-LNB, but I only need to use it as a single LNB for freeview only.

Link to the LNB specs

our help is greatly appreciated!

From your other post, it sounds like you've found a way to make it work. I tried one of these LNB's once and the only way I could get it to work was upside down. They don't work well for two satellites because the spacing between the pickups is too wide for the gap between Optus D1 and D2.

don't mess with me.... i'm the hd insider....

Gidday Insider - actually this is a different setup.  I'm setting up two satellites at the same time!!

One for the mother-in-law and one for my own folks - busy weekend!

Yes when I originally bought it for a Optus D1/2 setup, the instructions said to have it upside down, but the other posts I read said it's crap as a dual LNB

I'm not worried about the dual-LNB setup, only interested in single LNB.

I thought the upside-down instructions were specific to the D1/2 setup, so I was going to try it "right-side-up" but do you think it needs to be upside down even in single LNB config?
