A quick word of advice, a shop in North London, Called Pars Satellite in Woodhouse road in Friern Barnet is awful, on friday i bought an lnb, and it wasn't up to scratch so when i took it back today only 3 days later then wouldn't give me a refund, so DON'T buy anything from there.

You need to be able to argue 'not fit for purpose' under the sale of goods act.
They'll give you your money back then.

Thats not quite the same as your claim in the first post is it ?

As long as you have the receipt, and the serial number ties up, there should be no problem.

As long as the item is still in good contition and origional state, complete with reciept, the shop is legally obliged to return your money or exchange it for another. If they have said no first time, or told you to come back at a later date, that is unacceptable, you should tell the manager that when you see him, he might give it you for free as a goodwill (And shut up...) gesture.:)

Try Parabolic Communications, Finchley. www.parabolic.co.uk .

Or Grandata, opp Wembley Stadium (Poppin Centre), general tv spares but not a sat shop, so they might not have some stuff you'd expect. www.grandata.co.uk .
