    Can't answer your query regarding the remote but have you checked the manual or even googled it?

    Check lyngsat.com for what size dish you need for Astra 1 (19E).

    No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

    Can't advise on the receiver, but a minidish should pull in Astra1 at 19.2e, but it'll be touch and go, especially in bad weather, with a minidish unless it's a 60CM Zone 2 dish. Personally I'd go for an 80CM dish, that way you should get a decent signal even in the worst weather...
