I'm looking at one of the new irdirto ip-LNBs with the ability to stream up to 8 transponders/channels via Ethernet directly from the lnb (no switch or conversion outside of the LNB required) for my 'freeview' purposes, but I also want to keep my Sky installed quad lnb for my mysky hdi.  Is it possible to mount both LNBs at the same using a dual mounting bracket and have them both receive a signal from Optus D1.  I know that you can use a dual mount to get 2 lnbs on multiple satellites (D1 and D2 for example), so I wonder if this is possible?

Thanks,

Chris

No, you'd need a second dish. Only one LNB per dish for a given satellite, as it will end up at the wrong focal point for the sat you want to receive.

Thanks Runningman, that is what I thought, have to think a little harder...
