I have two Tata Sky boxes - One Tatasky+ HDTransfer PVR & Other also HD PVR but little older box as secondary.
My question is on LNB. Which LNB setting is suitable with this setup - Universal LNB or Super LNB. Which is actual optimum setting? TS call centers have no clue on this.

I tried Super LNB with INA 23 but few channels do not come & with Universal dual band 9.75 and 10.60 all channels come with GSAT K9 Home frequency.

Super lnb is anyday better than universal one. Use super lnb with gsat k9 as home frequency. The problem with super lnb is that you cannot split the connection output as it only has 1 port which is optimum for Tata Sky transfer + hd which also works with 1 lnb port, whereas universal lnb may have port from 1 to 4 for output, which suits tatasky hd+ box as it requires 2 lnb ports to work properly.

May be that is the reason that Tata Sky person removed the superlnb and replaced with universal lnb so that he can install secondary box(Which has two tuners) . Now that I am no longer using the secondary box (Its in paused state), can I buy a super lnb from market with two ports (In case I decide to use secondary box later?)
Note - The current lnb does not seem to pick signals in superlnb for Gsat10 satellite......
