There's a strong possibility they're all being knocked out by the same factory in Taiwan or China.
The Jonsa looks a lot like the Maximum, which is turn looks a lot like the SatConn.
Based on my maths, the signal to for Astra 28E will not be strong enough?
The same guy has a listing for a TV with a satellite tuner built in:
I have asked him does it include DiSEqC. If so this might be a good "bedroom" solution for Saorsat/FreeSat ish setup.
Did the trade show happen? Was the KA LNB mounted in the centre, or half each side? Was the adapter bracket modified or drilled?
Was it the same as the Cork photo?

I knew nagging would work
So 29th of Feb it is.
Looks like it will be unveiled on Wednesday 29th February - first ‘Saorview’ approved HD Combi receiver: Triax TSC114 (bottom right of official flyer).
Very Important news at this stage - first confirmed Combi for Satellite and saorview, and first Saorsat system - Obviously we need more information such as a specification flyer -
New video of saorsat setup, with dual feed on ISAATV channel.
For anyone who's thinking of it, here's a step by step vid for combining saorsat and freesat channels using a 2x1 diseqc switch
Triax have unveiled the new Saorsat (sat only) box.
This is the one with the blue display shown on the front. I didn't play with it. I don't know if it really was even connected to a Saorsat dish or not with DiSEqc. It had a hard drive attached. There was no model number on the unit. They won't be available for 4 week or more.
I saw the TD78 with dual feed. Basically it's a standard 80cm dish with the normal triax multi LNB bracket attached. The unit on show was indoors and had no cables attached.
It appears as if they seem to think a 60cm prime focus dish will work for Saorsat alone, while an 80cm is needed for both with each LNB offset to the same amount each side. Although we should wait until RTENL announce this.
They seem to be using a triax branded KA 20GHz LNB,
More details here:
Does this new box have full EPG for DTT & Sat channels?
This thread is about Saorsat not DTT
This is a question about a combi box. The thread for the combi is here:
Quick answer no.
Finally RTENL have released more info. The main discussion is on the Saorsat sticky.
Regarding single dish feed this is the size recommendations:
Dark green 80cm at prime focus, light green 100cm at focus.
Regarding dual feed this is the design recommended by RTENL
Based on this info
I can't see how the 28.2 LNB will get enough signal. Something does not add up
In my opinion it would be best to offest the Saorsat LNB a little bit, in order for the 28.2 LNB to see the equivalent of a 60cm dish.
I would recommend using an 80cm dish and mounting the Saorsat LNB off by 5 degrees, and mounting the 28.2 off by 15 degrees.
The dish shown in the photo looks to be the Inverto 80cm dish (as supplied by onwave) with a special offset arm, which is not yet publically available. It seems to use a washing machine hoseclip type holder for the second LNB
I would not recommend Inverto/Onwave dish as it seems as if the 28.2 LNB will not get enough signal, and it does not appear to have the ability to offset both LNB's
The triax TD78 with dual mount seems to be a better solution although for safety an 88/90cm dish would be a safer bet. Alternatively the multifocus dish although it will probably work out more expensive.
For the extreme South West/North Donegal an even larger dish may be needed.
By the way the Triax unique dish is no longer manufactured.
Hard to know what they are basing their size recommendations on, unless they are planning a further drop in signal power or change to FEC? I was testing well within the 100cm zone, and an 80cm dish provides more than enough rain reserve.
That would be my feeling too. Putting the Astra LNBF 19 degrees offset doesn't make much sense on an 80cm dish, regardless of whether it's a Ka/Ku or a Ku/Ku setup.
The Inverto dish design is quite similar to the Triax. The Triax multibracket may fit the Inverto dish. I will see if I can dig out the Triax bracket at the weekend to see if it will fit the Inverto .
