Hi greg
Just make sure your receiver and motor are USALS compatible. USALS= Goto x (not gotax).
Can't recommend particular receivers, check out one of the satellite enthusiasts' magazine for prices.

If you follow the advice you can find on this site and with a basic DIY knowledge and a lot (yes a lot) of patience then you can do it yourself. If budget is not limited it is worth getting in the experts who will tend to do the job quicker.

I spent about two weeks tweeking to get the dish set up correctly.

I also use a DreamBox which has a choice of software and not all support the GoToXX functions as well as you would expect.

My advice would be to try it yourself you have nothing to lose!
