I'm looking to ugrade my motorised receiver. I'm not sure which receive to buy i have been looking at the Manhattan DSR-2500 APCI and the Echostar AD 3000 IP. I would love to hear from anyone using either of these receivers for you views.
I have owned and intensively used an ad3000ip for several months. It is the best integrated analogue/digital receiver with positioner on the market. The Manhattan model is nowhere near as well integrated.
That's not to say the Echostar is perfect. There are still a few bugs in the software, and the software doesn't exploit (in my opinion) the full capabilities of the hardware.
There is a dedicated discussion board for that receiver. It's Dutch, but many postings are in English and there's a separate English forum too (which I moderate).
