Hi all, green question I'm afraid.

Which dish is better in terms of quality of signal, solid or mesh. I did read that the system setup arrangement (other than the LN:cool: could have a significant impact on the quality of signal.

I have a syntec 2000 LNB if it makes any difference, connected to a SkyStar 2 PCI card.

Many thanks.

Markie.

If you buy a good quality solid dish, it should out perform an equivalent size mesh dish. There a couple of threads on here discussing the differences.

Hello Markie9999, (where are the other 9998 of you by the way, havn't heard from them for ages !!!)

It's going to sound like I'm working for the following company becuase I seem to be recommending them a lot lately but I bought my Solid 80cm Digiquest dish for £25
and it's working a treat.

Just seen the website of a company (well Known) in the midlands who are selling larger dishes for what looks like silly money. eg. 1.5mtr for £99 and 2.4mtr solid
for £199. don't look too bad if you're in the market for something bigger for Xmas
