Maybe some guru's can shed some light on this.

I have a 1m winegard dish that has the 3 lnb support arms that come together and attach to a ring that holds the legacy LNB.

I want to upgrade my system to use DishPro components but all I see is the DP LNB's that have some sort of integral mount to a typical dishnetwork dish.

How can I accomplish this? is there a bracket I have to buy or perhaps new support arms?

Thanks,

I found that the difference is a "universal" LNB mount vs a "D-shape" mount.

Anyone know of a trick or adapter to use a dp single lnb with a universal mount?

I read where some have taken the plastic shroud off and exposed a neck or throat that works with the universal mount.

Any help would be appreciated

I think you have the right idea. In fact you can get them with out the cover.

I'm far from having the knowledge others here do, but I'd consider getting three Winegard dishes with the Dchannel arm (no LNB mounting problems at all) and either a DP34 or DPP44 switch. I think the largest dish for that is only 30". If you juryrig a 1m dish to use three LNBs, my guess is you will see some signal strength loss because of the dish shape. Good luck and keep us posted.
