Had a look at WoS for those modulators - NOT cheap @around £129 each! Think I'll stick with my analogue dist system until the DRX 895 fails (or Sky "turns it off") - then again, I still have that "Lidl" 895 on the shelf to replace it - that kitchen TV fails
You should have seen the price when they first came out!

Could you not just use one of these... Scart to HDMI adapter, gets fairly good reviews on Amazon.

Got one of those to connect the SCART o/p of the Solo 2 to a screen after the HDMI o/p got fried - a real pain in that application because you still need a SCART-SCART cable to connect the RX to the converter, and that cable keeps becoming disconnected after even a slight jog.

Also, I can't see how that would help in connecting to a digital distribution system!:blink: A wireless HDMI Tx to Rx system would be cheaper, even if I had to buy a couple of extra receivers!

Not sure if anyone else has had the issue, but I find that dishes (especially heavy ones) being adjusted for azimuth (compass direction) have a tendency to slip down the mounting pole/mast.

However, for most dishes that is easily solved by fitting a "jubilee clip" (or 2 connected in series for big diameter poles) around the pole immediately below the mount - Simples! :)

In that context, Lidl have a cheap set for £2.99 ATM if you don't have any.
Sorry, my post should have been in the "Just something for the garage/workshop" thread!!:-doh
Anyway, ref scopus' and Llew's replies - the Lidl box of clips is cheaper than several exhaust clamps!
