Here's my cheap little setup, I got an old camera tripod and fitted a Zone 1 Minidish to it which I got for free! Pointed at 19.2E

The red tape is a waterproof gaffa tape that I had, although I'll be investing in some self-amalg soon.

On the other end I have my Analogue box set up.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Very nice, and with a Skyware SX1019/S LNB too (dunno what it is about them, I just like them... :D )... :)

Nice :D Hang a bucket of earth under the tripod and it will help stop it blowing over.

Looks good:D

Looks like a Jungle, you'll have to keep a close eye on all that surrounds the dish, plenty pruning :)

Yeah, I had to cut a few bits back the other day after a sparkly frenzy, it was the leaves blowing back on it in the wind!

I'm hoping to upgrade the dish soon, depends if the rest of the family will let me have a bigger one though.

Hmm I didn't think of that, I'll give it a go!
