Depends what size you dish is!

With an 80cm here in Galashiels, I onlty get a handful of (fta) channels.

Hi Analoguesat I've got a 90cm dish, I only get a handful too. Very frustrating, I think I'll have to buy an NDS card or something. All I want is Swedish TV, I thought it'd be easy. Maybe D2mac days were easy to get Swedish chans.... wish I had that back then.

There are various footprints in use at 1W, most of them tightly spotted onto Scandanavia. The 1W scrambled channels are tightly screwed down so if you want them you will need to get a legit card

I used to get a lot on 1W with an old 90cm Sky mesh dish.I couldn't get Thor 3 with the old dish as that needs a bigger dish but could manage Thor 1 and 2.Unfortunately most of it's encrypted now,which is a pity as there were lots of good channels. I used to tape on Sunday morning off one of the Danish channels Married With Children.They would show about six episodes every Sunday. I found that if you are near the east coast 1W comes it pretty good.

Anyone know where to get a legit card? I dont mind buying one. Do I need conax cam or will the dreambox do this? Also interested in the Viasat stuff on Sirius 5E too, TV1000 etc.
