Hi,
I want to buy a satellite receiver, for FTA in a first stage (and possibly more later)
I need help for choosing a good receiver (we already have a dish installed for Astra)
I found several models that seem interesting, in particular TECHNOMATE TM-1000D, TM-4100D and TM-1500CI+
Can someone explain me the difference between these models ?
Which one would you advice?
Other brands ?
Thank you for your help,
Jean

Welcome to the forum Jean, there are loads of great receivers around at the moment, the Technomate 1500Ci is a very popular one though, with a potential for expansion, as it is flashable (software upgradable) to receive that little bit extra. ;)

If you are good with computers, then perhaps consider any one of the Dreambox range, in my opinion a step further forward. :)

Check out Technomate's site Jean
http://www.technomate.com/home.php

I have a 1500CI+,it's my first sat reciever and i have to say it's great for a novice.
Might be worthwhile in looking into a motorised dish to get the best out of it:D

Hi,
It seems that it will be difficult to record programs from the satellite receiver on a "standard" video.
Isn't better to get one including a hdd ?
What are the most interesting models ?

Just as a matter of interest, you say that you have a dish installed for Astra, which Astra, is it the one at 28.2 which holds the BSkyB package and BBC etc, or the one at 19.2 East?

Actually I don't know: we rent the house and the dish has been installed by the landlord, so it will be the surprise
I hope at least it works properly
