    If you have standard Foxtel, a single 10700 LNB and a single cable is required.

    If you have any model Foxtel iQ, you require a dual output 10700 LNB and two cables connected to your iQ decoder.

    Foxtel use Sharp Brand LNB's, but other good brands (eg: Strong) will work, but I recommend using the Sharp as they perform the best.

    Other things to consider is if the dish is still correctly aligned for C1/D3, given someone has removed the LNB.

    Some would steal the spots of a Dalmation but I am curious to know if they just cut the cable or unscrewed it and in what condition is it in now.
    I am thinking of corrosion or water ingress if its been weather exposed for any period of time and may need replacing.
    I stand unequivicably behind everything I say , I just dont ever remember saying it !!

    It's been a month since the OP posted.

    It's always nice (and polite) to post an outcome to help given, so that everyone knows how you got on.... whether you succeeded, or need further help.
