newbie questions

My Satellite Setup
sony vaio
i want to get a sat set up but dont want to pay sky as there are many good free services out there. anyway, i have a few questions.

I was thinking of getting a panasonic Tu-DSB30/31 with a motorised satellite.
Will this box work with other satellites other than the astra/sky as i want to pick up german stations on other satellites?

Also, im in ireland. I know i can recieve the free channels (bbc ect) without a card but i was looking on ebay and there are 'freetoair' - 'yellow house' sky cards for sale that they say will let me watch itv1 ch4 for free also. is this correct?

Dont bother with a sky digibox if you want to see channels on other satellites, it doesn't support diseqc motors. Get a FTA box, a Cam, a Cas2 interface.
If you want to see ITV and CH4 then you will need a Sky digibox and viewing card, BBC can be viewed on any FTA box.
