:confused I have been considering having a satellite set up for years, even posted in here ages ago but work, home commitments and family somehow delayed it all. My brother died very recenly and left me a little in his will, saying treat yourself to something special. Now I have just retired I am after that something special, a sat system and need yoiur help. I am confused, read pages and pages on the web, lnb's dishes, motors, receivers but its all become a blur. Must be old age. Can someone point me in the right direction? I decided on a 1.2 or 1.5 Gilberti dish with Jaeger 1224 EL motor and jack. I live on the south coast, face s/se and I am not sure on the best LNB or receiver. In all I have upto £1k to spend but would like to spend it extra wisely on this occasion in paticular. Many thanks. :-worship

Thats it, ordered from Germany, never arrived, luckily I put it on the credit card and had a refund. Months later I got an email with apologies saying the item had been returned as they had put my address as Norway. Will look at the TD again....now I'm rarin to go. :-thumb1

Could do worse than reorder a TD, just needs a little brainwork to get the best out of it.

Just involve yourself in this excellent hobby, and your cares will fade away (my experience anyway).
