What do I need to begin



Im new to this stuff but have a little knolwledge of how it works. I have got an nec 80cm dish on the house i have just moved in and it has an lnb on it which im guessing came with the dish when the previous owners had it installed. I was told the dish may be analoge but does this matter if you have the correct lnb. does it have to be a universal lnb. I just need some info on what to buy to pick up some foreign channels. Thanks if you can help and thanks if you cant.

My Satellite Setup

My Location
The dish will be fine, but the LNB may well not be a universal LNB and will possibly need replacing. I seem to remember that these LNBs were a 25mm collar or even C120 with a polariser, rather than the now common 40mm.

What are you planning to view, if it is still pointing at 19.2E, then there is a fair bit on there to watch, but you may find a bit more on 13E.
