Hi Len, welcome to the forum.

A first step for a newbie would be to look at this section for help given to members in setting up a system -

Satellite Systems - What to Buy - What to install

Then any particular pointers you may need will no doubt be answered by someone on the forum.

Len,

Welcome to the forum.

For satellite feeds in general you need to have "multi satellite" capability. This can be achieved in a number of ways, firsly, a motorised dish that can be rotated around a central axis to lock onto satellites east and west. The second option would be to install a single satellite dish with "multi focal LNB" capability. This is normally achieved by using a bracket that the LNB's are fixed to with each LNB capturing signals from different satellites. The third option would be to install multiple dishes with each dish locked onto a unique satellite.

Personally, as satellite cricket feeds are your focus I would go for the motorised satellite dish option and get it setup for both C-Band and Ku-Band. Cricket feeds can pop up in both C-Band and Ku-Band so scope for reception of both frequncy bands is useful. The cricket feeds can sometimes be unscrambled and sometimes scrambled. This forum does not allow discussion of procedures to enable viewing of scrambled feeds. For unscrambled feeds it is generally a matter of finding them and using a suitable satellite receiver/tuner to view them on either a TV or a computer monitor.

Popular software for viewing satellite signal are programs such as DVB Dream, DVB Viewer, ProgDVB, SmartDVB or VLC.

You have a bit of a steep learning curve ahead of you and for some of the C-Band cricket feeds you may need quite a large satellite dish depending on the satellite used for the feed and your UK location under the signal footprint.

Good luck !

West Indies v England test matches, I am not sure if it is live or just highlights If it is live it might be a fast feed, the type much loved by the punters?

Hi all, I've been through site and I've come to the conclusion its weeks or months to get up to speed. Could anyone recommend a one stop shop to setup for me? I don't have the bandwidth to learn from scratch and hoping for a local source I can pay to install and setup. Any help be gracefully received. DM me if that works better. Thanks again!
