Hello guys, I currently only have a standard sky digital sat system. I am looking to buy a satellite system which will allow me to get channels from around europe but dont have a clue what to buy.

The main thing I need the system for is Golf coverage but it will generally be for all sports. (usa golf coverage if possible)

From what i read the Technomate 1500ci looks a good reciever .. is it ? and do i need it motorised to get more golf/sport ?

I would be greatful for any help with ideas for my setup ....thanks

Very difficult, mainly because there is so much equipment around and all doing similar things with similar results. The Technomate has been well hyped and is no doubt a good receiver with quite good support, but it isn't the best (well not in my opinion).

If you are good with computers and understand home networks and FTP, then you perhaps ought to consider something more sophisticated such as the Dreambox or Triple Dragon.

You would do well to spend a couple of weeks going through the various sections, as there is an awful lot to consider. :)
