Can the LX2000 Pipe Antenna be used with an analogue system?
Can`t use my 80cm dish as i already have a sky dish up and iam not allowed 2 dishes up without planning permision.

Thanks for any help.

If you are looking to receive Astra19.2 Analogue, why not use your 80cm with a second LNB for that and 28.2, no need to spend £150 to achieve what you want Pippin31

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

The idea behind a pipe antenna is steeped in technobabble. The reality is usually not as good as the adverts claim

You could put the second dish up anyway as long as you are prepared to remove it or apply for planning permission when the local council objects. If you make some effort to mount the second dish in an unobtrusive place and not directly next to the other one, the chances of anyone noticing two dishes is low.

THanks for you help and advice. I decided to stick on a pole in the back garden in the end and it works fine there.(btw got the system from Lidi for £40 great deal)
