Im really starting to enjoy looking at feeds on my little motorized comag sl55.

But im getting sick of it not beeing able to handle low
FEC's 3500 and above it can handle, and now seeing all these listed at 4:2:2.

Are they easy to use and can anyone suggest a good cheap place to get one.

Cheers!

Don't know your criteria, but I wouldn't be without mine, even with my Dreambox in addition.

4:2:2 and HDTV? What are you waiting for...

Sat TV fiddlers dream.

Pay around £40 - £50.

I think my skystar 2 is great as the 3rd party software is very good and you can record films to DVD. Another good thing is the EPG - although it may be in a foreign language you can easily copy & Paste it into Altavista translator and you can understand exactly what the film is going to be about .
YES worth the money

there should be a record function on your program i.e progdvb,ect, this will record it to mpeg then use something like nero,windvd(there are plenty out there)to convert to dvd and burn
