Are there some receivers on the market that are able to get other signals then free to air which are viewable by installing software to the Receiver?
I know I am walking a thin line on this question if you want just email the reply.

But it does depend on what you can receive at your location, there is for example a bigger selection of providers available in Europe, whereas in the US, there are really only a couple of options. There are dedicated US and Canadian forums for these two, we don't really dicuss them here, as we cannot see the satellites.

PS. Don't try and join a US forum with that IP, they may bump you.;)

If he came from manchester (north-west by the way) he wouldn't choose a name like iwantsnow.
There's only 3 types of weather in Manchester, It's raining, it's just stopped raining and it's going to rain!

Sorry I hijacked this thread to tell a bad joke
