Hi Guys,
I have a nokia mediamaster 1200 linked to a 80 cm dish with which I view eutelsat at 13*east.
I also want to buy a mini dish of 45 cm and watch the bbc channels free to air (via astra) once I connected this dish with my exststing receiver.
I am in the London area, therefore is a 45 cm dish sufficient to watch all the free to air channels available on Astra using my nokia 1200??
Plus, Will I also be able to receive ITV1 and 2 plus sky news and cnni again, using the same receiver???
Lasty, can someone tell me if a simple 'switch' will do to enable me to watch both astra channels and eutelsat using the same receiver (nokia 1200 mediamaster)???
Thanks Guys I would appreciate a reply so I may understand more.
Take care

Yes a DiseqC switch and 45cm dish will do it, you won't be able to get ITV1 though at the moment, as it is encrypted.
