My Satellite Setup
TM1500 ci
80cm dish + dual LNB
My Location
I want to buy a Satellite reciever and have been looking on ebay but every time i see 1 i like the look of i have second thoughts as i dont want to buy a reciever that is no good for what i want it for so i was hoping that one of you guys out there can point me in the right direction.
I live in the UK and want the reciever mostly for watching premiership football but films and XXX would be a bonus so any help would be great and when the Recievers talk about exstra slots for cams well that looses me completly.
Thanks all regards Robo4

Hi robo4 and welcome.

A motorised system is always the best solution for our hobby and there's lots of information on this site.

As for the receiver I would consider one of the Technomates, probably the 1500ci. The ci means common interface and is in effect a cam slot. Cams slot in and hold cards which decrypt channels. In the case of the 1500, the cam slot can be flashed, that is re-programmed with software so that some channels can be decrypted without cam or card.
