Hi,
I've looked at a lot of the posts and am having trouble deciding which receiver I need to buy. I live in the North West of England (Nr Kendal) and would like to receive the German digital channels and some premier channels (Sport, Movies, etc.)
I have a 90cm dish with a Cambridge Universal LNB that I used for analogue, aimed at 19 degrees, I would like to fit a DiSEqC 1.2 motor to this dish so I can receive from other sats as well.
My Buget for a receiver is about £100.00. I presume I will need a CAM or card slot in the receiver but don't know anything about these. I used to have a D2Mac decoder many years ago. Are cams like the old eprom cards that you can program yourself?
I would appreciate the advice of you experienced guys.
Regards,
Dave
PS. My wife is German so I shouldn't have a problem buying one from Germany if they are the best price. (plus you get 2 years warranty in Germany)
