I'm looking to recieve FTA satellite television. I have decided to opt for a 90Cm satellite dish with 4 LNB's. I'll hopefully be recieveing all FTA channels on:

ASTRA 19,2° East,
EUTELSAT 13° East,
ASTRA 23,5° East and
Eurobird-ASTRA 28,5° East

Can anyone recommend a dish and/or LNB's? Are there any good packages which come with a decent dish and LNB's pre-aligned? The TechniSat Multytenne looks great, however it is only a 45Cm dish and I doubt that'll pick up all satellites well from Sheffield.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks!

some thing like the WAVEFRONTIER's TOROIDAL dual reflector dish would be good for you. It comes in 55cm and 90cm versions.

The 90cm can hold up to 16 lnb`s.:)

You will be pushed to recieve all of the transponders form 23.5E on a 90cm in Sheffield particularly the Czec and Slovak packages as I just about get 24/7 reception of them down here with my antenna. If these are important to you then you may have to rethink your dish requirements. You should be fine with everything else though.

I would be tempted to consider a motorised system - need not cost a lot and might be a fair bit cheaper than the options you are looking at at the mo...

One of our sponsors (dvb shop24) advertises diseqc systems with 110cm dish for about £113 + carriage -and there's lots of info on how to set up here in the Forum.

If you can install at ground level you can have lots of fun setting up - doesnt have to be high up as long as dish can see sats....
