I have juts bought a new house and i am gonna get sky but i wanna use a pc-card to play with other sats such at astra 19 or/and hotbird 13.

Am i really allowed to put 2 dishes up or can i have a twin lnb situation or even a triple...

Don't wanna venture into motorised really coz of the cost and i dont wanna a reciever (apart fro sky downstairs), just a pc-card in my room upstairs.

Any info appreciated

cheers

I have a couple of dishes on my wall and nobody seems to worry, one is a fixed dish for 28.2 and the other is a steerable DiseqC motor using a zone 2 minidish. Only problem is that some of the PCI receivers do not happily handle a DiseqC motor (see thread in PC card based receiver forum).

The reason I suggest a steerable dish is that you may find 19.2 an 13E a little limited, particularly with what is available on 30W and 1W.

If you were to decide on a fixed dish option, you could probably get away with an 80cm for all three 28.2, 19.2 and 13E on the same dish, but not the best solution, this would allow you to use the budget Skystar 2 card at around the £50 mark using a diseqC switch for the two non-Sky satellites.
