Hi Peter, welcome to the forum, as a start I'll move this post to Digital Systems, which will cover the more general nature of your post.

There are no receivers which will enable viewing of both Sky Digital and other encryptions, as there is not a Videoguard CAM and the digibox will not support other CAMs, there is a slot, but it is disabled.

To recommend one particular receiver is very difficult, mainly because there are so many good ones and people's opinions differ.

Have a read through some of the threads in this section, there is a lot of discussion on the better known receivers and also what you will need for reception of films etc.

Make sure that you can position any dish you may be fitting , so that it will give reception of 30West

Thats probably one of the few positions where you will get uninterrupted (well most of the time) viewing of high class entertainment of all types.
