Morning

The Switch arrived today - in EMP-Centauri taped packaging and with an EMP-Centauri Invoice!

So it could be worth remembering in future that, although the seller's online name is "sattvnoone", it would seem that anything coming from there is actually coming direct from EMP-Centauri themselves - and generally quite a bit cheaper than on the price list of the EMP-Centauri website.

PS: I strongly suspected this to be the case when placing the order, due to the seller's location being in the Czech Republic.

Having now rechecked the listing myself, I think that the exclusions list must be wrong as it seems to exclude all the EU countries - including the Czech Republic itself where the lister is located, which seems crazy!. I would use the "contact seller" route to check what the actual situation is.

Edited: I then checked other items on the seller's shop (Items for sale by sattvnoone | eBay) and the same exclusion does not seem to apply to (at least most of) those other items. Therefore I think that particular listing is incorrectly worded.

PS: Finally (due to weather and mobility issues) got my switch installed in the last week and it's working well. The only issue that I had with it relates to the mode-selector DIP switch bank, where it is all too easy to accidently move a lever to the wrong position and then the switch will not work - sorted that by covering the correctly-set switch with transparent waterproof tape! :D

Despite some opposing reviews for this diseqc,I,however,bought EMP Centauri for my toroidal antenna with 16 lnb.And I have to admit I wasn't wrong.From 2008 until today I had no problems.It works perfectly with any device I command it with.
