Don't know about in Essex, but up here in the frozen wastelands of N. Manchester, a 60cm dish just won't get ART sport. I get it fine on my 80cm solid, but a friend is still experiencing freezing problems with a 85cm mesh.
Don't know anything about the receiver either, but I'm sure if you shopped round you could get a Technomate or something similar for around the same price (or cheaper)
As for the installation and being lazy, that's you and me both m8 :)

I am looking for a system that will get the Art Sport Channels in South Manchester. What is the best Dish size to get and can anyone recommend an installer in the Manchester area ?
