I am seeing this at least 2nd hand.  I did not receive your original post nor at least 1 other reply from the list...

Several questions / comments:
  1. Did you use a spectrum analyzer to aim the dish?
  2. What satellite are you receiving?  AMC18 or the CRC bird?
  3. What is a "PRIE C-Band Feed Horn"?  I am not familiar with that unit.
  4. The Norsat 3220 is pretty much the standard for feed horns these days.
  5. I have never found a bad out of the box LNB but it certainly could happen.
  6. I am assuming that the STI-12 dish is a mesh dish?  It _should_ work better than most any 10ft dish...
  7. Did you accurately set the focal point of the feed horn?
  8. Did you verify that the reflector is as true as possible by stretching strings across the appature and seeing if they touch or almost touch.  Not to be confused with one string is holding all the other strings up...
  9. What is your old LNB?
  10. Are all of your receivers EBNO down?
