Hi,

Hope this is the correct place to post this question. Since ART has lost the footy, I'm going to switch over to Digitalb. The thing is though, my 70cm dish is not able to get a good enough signal. I tried the free music channel, but the picture kept breaking up.

So I'm going to purchase a bigger dish, but I'd prefer to have the smallest possible to pick up Digitalb. Can anyone here recommend a good, but not too large dish?

Whilst looking around, I did find a dish called a Fracarro Penta 85cm. It's claimed to be just as good as a 1m dish. Is this really so?

Thanks.

well im about 5 miles from you...and I use 80cm transparent dish, 0.2db lnb.

I can pick up my music, digialb5-8 ...but not premium channels.

I reckon 90cm would guarantee you

We are yet to justify this claim Sanook, I have been promised one to test, but it hasn't arrived yet, they do seem to be well made. :)
