Anyone got any clues as to when Lidl will have the equipment in again? Surely it's nearly time again for the Porty kits to re-appear (or something similar if they've finished being made)...

Either that or some dishes & LNB's to buy, I need to get myself a new dish to add to the collection (the future missus will hate me for all the stuff I'm collecting, she thinks I'm nuts to have what I've already got... :D )... :rolleyes:

Usually they appear in Europe or Ireland before the UK.

You can check the lidl site in Europe using their web prefix.

You may be asked for a local postcode but a Google search will help with that!

I think they start later in the year - maybe wrong!

Checkout their web site which has the next weeks offers and the option of an email newsletter...

The satellite kit sells out quickly...

I got this kit last year and at the moment I'm pairing it up with a Skystar 2 PCI card at the moment and the Porty is not in use at the moment but has been in the past successfully. I don't believe that it can be patched (or it couldn't when I last had it out)

The number of newbies who will be posting shortly after getting this will probably be fairly high so a dedicated forum would be an idea.


This kit is quite hard to get so you have to be there early (they queued when I got mine, people were climbing over each other to get to grab one from the pile). If you miss out I ran across this recently at Maplin, I don't know how it stacks up against the Lidl kit but if you need a portable one (as I did) its an option:

As far as I know, it is patchable, it's just no-one has made a patch yet that works on the PortyII...

I had to wait for 1/2 an hour outside Lidl to get in when it opened, some old git barged past me to get to them, I just casually strolled along and then grabbed a Porty kit when I got to them, and then got to the checkout which hadn't even opened yet!!!! :-rofl2

That kit at maplin looks like it's a porty kit too but with a different receiver...
