hi all ,

i have been reading for a while now and have finally got the money to buy a basic system....

so im looking for some advice and help

i have thought about buying a dish and puting multiple lnbs on it

i already have sky so want to replace the dish with a bigger one but it it possible to get sky, hotbird and astra 19 all with say 3 lnbs and one dish

also if you dont mind was looking at technomate receivers....to get the good stuff of course but do i need the ones with the ci slots so for instance i can get sexviewtv ....


and finally what do i need to do to get freextv....

thanks in advance for all your help.......and hopefully will be reporting back soon with the good news that im up and running


sorry one late addition can the skyplus box be used with any other satellite

thanks again

My Satellite Setup
A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Skyplus - standard receiver can get other FTA satellite channels with SR 22000 or 27500 but the recording may be affected by the EPG missing

Try it and report back if you can

I lost my nerve about going motorised and settled for 2 lnbs and a technomate 5500 CI and CAM. THe S*y box could be a bit limiting.
Very happy with this set up as it is enough to be enjoyable but not too much to be a problem. There is an element of pot luck about what I watch though but there is football on DSF RTL5 and other channels and that other stuff on XXL and multivision (with a 6 in 1 card).
