Default Sky q and freesat

So does this in fact mean then that one can now get such lnbs and is there
anything out there box wise that can use them?

Or am I missing something...

I don't think there are "Q" transponders and "HD" transponders, it's just
that a Q LNB/Box doesn't need to switch between four combinations of
high/low band and horz/vert polarisation.

The LNB has one output for the whole horz band and another for the whole
vert band.
