Went on that site before wasn't very impressed couldn't find any good info. Other thing with a 65 cm dish would i be able to pick up any channels on Hotbird 13? Am thinking after a while will add motor so i can pick up more satelites!

They are probably both universal, as it is pretty much the standard for Europe these days, it is the noise figure which varies, the lower the better (but beware as all stated figures may not be what they appear).

65cm is OK for hotbird, but if you are looking to motorise, then go for an 80cm minimum. :)
