Hi
I acquired an old 1m vsat dish with a mount and outdoor unit with combined lnb ,reciever and transmitter . If I put a standard lnb on the mount could I use this dish to receive standard tv s atalites ?. This is probably a daft question but i wasnt sure if the vsat dish is suitable or not for this purpose . The dish is quite heavy and sturdy and looks like its made from fibrglass or somekind of plastic. Thanks Darren

Hi, 
If the feed is correct for the frequencies you want to receive then it should be fine.
The LNB waveguide interface would not match if the frequencies were also not the same range so if the LNB fits it should work. Try it and see.

Even if LNB has different wavelength spectrum - you could try to replace it with another LNB and still use it with an old receiver and transmitter if the bandwidth will suit in size
