The £100 budget looks a bit light for that spec! Have a look at the Technomate range and see how many boxes can be ticked at the that price. Personally I would put network connectivity a little higher up the list for an element of future-proofing.
<<I suspect you just took a chance to air your views on homosexuality.>>
The intention was to illustrate what I thought was an example of government hypocrisy. Clearly I missed the target and will return to only commenting on technical matters in future.
There is plenty of digital radio on satellite and via the internet.
I am all in favour of DAB but until I can get a simple set to use
when travelling for under a tenner FM will do me fine!
Most people do not see a cost/benefit which is the main reason for it

take a look at melonfarmers dot co dot uk to get a feel for the current state of censorship in the UK. From 26/1/09 possession (not distribution) becomes a crime. consider also that the government have given legal rights to minority groups who actually base their relationship on anal s_x!!
Thought as much! I need to move on in a simple sort of way and assume
that a patchable receiver is easier than trying to program a CAM all the time.
Can you recommend an idiot proof patchable box. My interst is football and
I am already amazed at how much is FTA with a cheap dish motor.
I have a F20 which is a real PITA to get started! There are service packs

Try dsldepot if nothing else for a cheap spare Speedtouch or
Netgear. I bought a Netgear to play with and its still connected at
8Mbs 3000 hours later! Firewall is useful for blocking ad sites
altough somtimes it blocks a site with ads altogether but can
easily have the blocking turned on and...
My main gripe over Norton is the cost but I recently got a
new three user NIS 2008 from Amazon for under £20. Seems
unobtrusive and causes no trouble. On the basis of "devil you
know" I will probably stay with it but prices are more variable
than bank shares on the stock exchange!
Thanks for above suggestions. I think the sound problem is a dodgy
double scart socket so will investigate further. I also deleted the
astra and hotbird channels (there is just SO much rubbish) and
am currently investigating Hispasat. Hopefully I might find
Hope this does not confuse! I set up a motor last weekend and it
seems reasonably OK. My learning curve included:
- You have to set an angle on BOTH the motor and dish brackets.
- After connecting to Hotbird I adjusted the dish elevation manually
for a stronger signal quality.
- The motor itself...
