    I don't know what LNB is best. I use cheap lnbfs available on the market - like GI, or even "no name" when it's over I'll buy another.
    I don't know what diseqc switch is best. I use cheap diseqc switches from china about 1$ each. One burns I take another.
    I don't know what motorized system is best. I don't use motors at all.
    BUT
    I'm absolutely sure.
    The best sat cable is genuine CAVEL-703B Made in Italy with a stripe.

    I suggest you first decide what you want obtain and then decide how to set up the devices.

    In my opinion is nonsense installing a 3mt dish if you are not interested in receive C-band channels. A big dish, without considering cost, is hard to manage and setup. Also suffering a lot the wind effects related to a normal dish.

    In any case is a good idea adopting a good cable and a low noise LNB...their cost is not so high at all.

    I use good quality 50 ohm coax Westflex 103 and a N type connector on the positioner + a home made N to F adapter for the receiver. The difference in impedance between 70ohm and 50 ohms seems to make no difference but the low loss high quality cable works well on my long cable run.

    There is a new material in developement which will offer very lightweight cables and the possibility of a using the same material as a coating on the outside of the dish. It involves a composite of silver and an unknown polymer.

    For the dish it would probably only give a gain of around 5% but for the cable much more.
