Hi All

I notice Software Superstore will Programme and setup the Technomate 1500ci with channels for Astra and Hotbird.

Is this necessary if I want to eventually patch the receiver,and would it help me when first setting up the installation.

Thanks

Alan

If you want to install a channel list, there are a few available on the web, but most can be searched for when you install the receiver, patching is equally easy.:)

Thanks rolfw

I was thinking of getting one of Satellite Superstores Motorised Packages,everything included,Dish,Mount Motor,Receiver etc.

Is this a good way to purchase my first system,or would I do better buying individual items say from ebay?

I am trying to get it right first time.

Thanks

why not just set the tm1500 super to astra or hotbird and just set it to scan or blind scan and the within a few min it will download all the channels to receiver, its so easy my 5 year old dauguter can do it

Or i can email you my channel list if you have a null modem cable you can send it to you satellite receiver

i just set the receiver to scan hotbird and it downloaded the list then, no need to get someone to put a channel list on as it could be out of date
