I've just been given a Echostar DVR-7000, I am a complete novice to all this and wondered what It is and what I can do with it.

What can you do with it?.....:-doh! Well my first suggestion is give it to me I will find a nice spot for it under my telly. lol

Here are some details for you but in laymans terms it is a digital satellite receiver with hard drive... Nice mate you have got there do not know how good it is but if you google for it I am sure you will find a review

Welcome to the forum by the way

:-beer for that. The reciever is new, I've been onto the Echostar website but there are no manuals for it, i'll call them on monday. In order to get any use out of it I assume I need a sat dish? Where do I start?

Go here:

_http://www.echostar-int.com/indexie3.htm

then support, then downloads, then manuals, then the manual is on the fifth or sixth page.

And you will need a dish and feedhorn.

Thanks, just downloaded the pdf file. OK, what dish? Dare I ask what a feedhorn is? Is there a good website to get the basic info or is it here?
