Re my setup in Bembridge, IOWight
Lucky to have a South facing wall, neighbours house is far enough away to pose no problems, nothing visible from road.
Neighbour recently complained, when I took the fence down with the intention of replacing it, visit from planning inspector followed.
Nice chap pointed out that if I could supply evidence that they had been in place more than four years then they could stay.
Being a snapper I try not to get dishes etc. in my pictures, but a trawl found images that proved the point, so fence will not be replaced by 2mtr panels, one upset neighbour.
Clutch on wall, old dish at Astra 19E. feeds Analogue Grundig, into domestic Toshiba 32 LCD, love motorbikes, and tennis for wife on Eurosport.
Nokia (will go 70/70) dish with Moteck motor, feeds Manhattan Plaza ST550.
Sky dish at 28E. Feeds Grundig DigiBox for FreeView (not Sky) in another room.
Big dish feeds Nokia 9800s and is controlled by Moteck driving a SuperJack, also in the other room.
PC is a home assembled AMD, on Chips motherboard, with dual 17 and 20 inch monitors. Sat. software is ProgDVB, and SS2DiSEqC, and SkyStar2 card.

Thanks for the comment Crossbones, get enough stick from wife and daughter about my untidy corner in the lounge.

nice setup surprised the neighbour only recently complained if you have had them up for 4 years +

thought you'd have the st550 controlling the dish so the vbox wouldn't be needed

Neighbour got uptight when I removed my rotten fence of 20+ years, as I said with the intention of replacing same. The dish is now in full view to him.
The ST550 runs the Nokia/Moteck dish.
V-Box runs the big green dish, used to have a Uniden controller, but it had limited positions, did'nt have much luck with the ST550 18V setup.
