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...

The minidish (I assume) would work, but not well, you'd be better off getting an 80cm dish and a decent LNB ad you need to set the LNB skew to something that the minidish can't do...

Also, most dishes are oval, it's just whether yours is wider than it is tall or not which determines it's name as a Minidish...

You can buy an 80cm dish from one of our advertisers for around £50 to include an LNB.
