Hi guys,
I am after a bit of advice.i am going to live in greece (near corfu) this summer.I have been told i need a 1.2m dish to get any s*y channels,with card obviusly.I also want to get ART sports so apparently need a reciever with 2 card slots.I was recommended a Technomate 7755 for the job.does that sound good to anyone out there.
Any other advice would be great
Cheers

If you want the BBC & ITV you are going to be needing something nearer 2.5m in diameter!

Technomates are decent enough receivers - the folks who own the 7755 on the forum seem to like it..

No, they are on Astra 2D, a very limited footprint and requires better than 2.4m dish in Corfu.

i really wanted to know about getting s*y and ART with the same machine,is this realistic,and is the technomate 7755 the best for the job.Alternatively would it be easier to get a different receiver for ART and an ordinary s*y digibox.
