hi.... :-newb
been reading some of the post here but i think my question has not been fully answered....thankx for your great advice though. i live in new addington which is at the south of london and i'm thinking of getting a techno 1500c+ with a 90cm motorised dish and wanted to know if that is enough to get african channels especially nss7 and intelsat 10-20 which i think is also around thor 1w.
my second question is is it neccesarry to go for a VBOX 2 with this setup or i have all i need.
third question is which satellite shows much football and not premieship but other legueas.
my fourth question ( sorry just want to put my mind at rest), is BET on satellite? if it is can i get it and also how many american channels can i access....

thankx.....

Well I am no expert on reception but the African chanells you refer to appear to be on on the African Beam so I think you will be out of luck there. Have a look at the appropriate Lyngsat page by clicking here scroll down to the V and H channels and you should be able to receive some European. If you click the links for East African you should see the problem

As you do not say what motorised setup you are using who can reply?

You need to say which leagues you want as there is a lot of crossover.

Are you refering to Black Entertainment Channel on direcTV???? Sorry no idea
Most American Channels are encoded in powervue which is not compromised so you are out of luck there what channels did you want to receive?

The TM1500 will work on Diseqc so as long as you have a diseqc motor it will be fine. A Vbox would only be required if you have a 36v motor which you won't need. So TM1500, 90cm dish and diseqc motorised and the world's your oyster. Well some of it is.
