Theres a tiny fta box, cables, clips and a 65cm dish in the kit.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

£40? That's cheap!!! But I bet it's not very good quality... :-rofl2

Any idea of the box's manufacturer? :confused

Dunno - the dish was mounted on a rack 10 feet up and the receiver was tied to the top of the lnb arm!

Actually the dish didnt look too bad - from what I could see it was a proper mount rather than a window mount.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Makro also shifts out the Silvercrest kits, but they also have one DIY HD satellite kit for just over £100.

It will be bought in Chinese stock. B&Q dont do their own brand satellite stuff. They sell SLX branded dishes.
