Hi,

I've recently got a "Wistron WNC Quad LNB" and I'm planning on installing it onto my Sky Dish myself. My dish is a standard black mesh minidish and I have a roll of reasonable quality wire which I think will suffice for adding the new wire.

I think I need to
- make sure that the collar for the LNB fits correctly
- check that the LNB is secure
- ensure that I don't move the dish.
- I also need to get some F conectors for the cable
- and possibly some rubber boots.

Am I missing anything else? I'd like to do this myself, but am I an idiot for even trying. (My current signal is very good, around the 60% mark.)

It needs to be fully-shielded (copper on copper) 75 Ohm coaxial cable to the relevant standard.
