Hi all,

I have a Triax 1m on a H/H. It needs a new arm and 36v motor, and I mean to get a digital receiver (it was an analogue system). Should I go 36v or diseq? The dish is at ground level and fairly sheltered.

The Technomate 1550 CI+ looks like a great deal compared to 36v receivers/positioners. Should I get one and change to diseq? Or, should I use the same receiver and a V box. Is a separate positioner very clumsy to use?

I'm trying to do this reasonably economically, so I'd be grateful for your advice.

Ta,

dly

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

It's a no brainer Technomate 1550 CI+ diseq patches as well, there is no alternative. 1mtr should be fine.

Thanx for your reply, toppervte33h.

So rather than buying repaclement 36v motor, arm and positioner, it would be better to throw out the triax H/H mount and get a diseq motormount to be driven by Technomate 1500CP+?

Sorry for being a bit dim about this, I'm only just dragging myself out of analogueland.

Well you can do that, or buy a new arm and a V-Box, the DiseqC option is probably cheaper and easier to install.
