I just came about this new LNB from Inverto.

Although it seems tempting and interesting, I'm really curious to know if this LNB perfoms better than other combo LNBs that are out there in the market. We know for a fact that these combos always give bad results in Ku band, so it should be interesting to see if Inverto finally makes the difference, given their overall good reputation!

The problem comes when you insert the plate for C band, this then totally screws up Ku band linear, unless like you say they have somehow addressed this issue..

Indeed, the strong satellites that a 1.2 m dish should get (Russian & Arabsat), all use circular pol.
For the look inside, I increased the contrast of the bad image of the site:

Is it possible that inserting a dielectric plate for circular C band also make Ku band circular, since there is a single feedhorn? That could work for Tricolor on 36E?
I think the LNB is for linear receptions anyway. The question should remain though: for linear reception, how good the Ku band performance could be? All reviews from other combos claimed that even without a plate, Ku band is severely hindered. Would Inverto fix that at least?
BTW, I couldn't find it anywhere for sale, wth?
