Getting a visit on saturday to get motorised checked and adjusted and while here i might get him to move my quad lnb on my multi arm on fixed dish which is using 19.2 and 13.

Need more feeds so might go for octo if possible on 19.2 anybody know yes or no?

Any english movies on other sat i might like if i have a spare multi lnb and might use a diseqc switch.

If you are asking: can I use an Octo LNB for 19.2E?
The answer is yes. If you think about it, what is the difference between a single, twin, quad or octo LNB? Apart from number of connections and size, they function the same.

Can you rephrase your question/statement? Even your last post does not make sense. Is the "but" meant to be an "and"? What do you want to achieve?

Do you have three dishes?
1. Motorised
2. Sky dish with octo LNB
3. Another dish with multiple LNBs

I found I had to use a bullet on 19 in order to get good SNR on all of 13 , on a 65cm dish NW UK

My dish size could be 80cm so unsure on spacing.

Not to sure if 23.5 is any good for movies in english if i have the room on the arm.

Yes 3 dishes in total
1 Motorised with quad lnb
Sky dish with octo
Another dish think 80 cm with quad on arm for hotbird.
Replaced quad for 19.2 with an octo and left with a quad lnb as no room for it for 23.5.

Whats next that has movies in english worth getting cheers.

Your post is not making sense. Post in a way so people can understand. Someone could read the first line as three motorised dishes with quad LNBs.

So far, this is what I understand.

Dish 1. Motorised dish with a quad LNB.
Dish 2. Sky Dish with Octo LNB.

Every dish has an arm. Apart form flat dishes/squish. Please elaborate.

Dish 3: How many LNBs does it have? Which type of LNB ( ports). To which satellites is each LNB pointing to.

Fixed 80 cm had 2 quads on a bracket and i wanted to expand to include more outputs 13 and 19.2.
Today quad for 19.2 was replaced with an octo but due to size/spacing could not fit the quad lnb for 23.5 beside it.

Basically with a spare quad not in use i wanted to see what movies are in english that i might be interested in on other sats to add it back in.

4 degrees is too tight for 40mm LNBs. You will need to get the bullet LNBs if you want add 23.5. Or use your motorised dish.

Don't use the stupid put-luck setup.
