before i start ill say that i do not currently have any sat setup - im evaluating all my options first :)

was thinking wholey on a multi lnb setup to pickup 13e 16e 19e and 28e but looked at all the footy id miss from all the other sats and now considering a motor instead.

not knowing a lot about how the receiver works in turn with the motor, i was wondering how long it takes to change channel from a station on say 19e to 1w? id prob be looking at getting a technomate 1500, im assuming you can program channels from different sats in a list of your channels yea?

also, would a multi lnb setup on a motorised dish be pointless? or is there benefits in it?

cheers for any info

it will take about 10 seconds or less on longer and a multi lnb setup on motorised yes pointless m8.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Hi elniniol999 and welcome to the forum

Since you are in Ediburgh and football is your main bag, the two questions I would ask are

Are you interested in football of all types ?
Do you live in a windy area ?

I am thinking that a Technomate with a standard sized dish (80cm) and DiSEqC motor, may not give you all you might be interested in. It might be worth looking at a larger dish in the first instance, and possibly a converter to drive a standard actuator system

Actuator as in standard (not DiSEqC) motor.

The converter changes the DiSEqC protocol to pulse information using four - or five - wires.
