    Yes it will work in Europe.
    It will receive any free to air channels that your satellite dish can receive in that location - just like any other FTA satellite receiver.

    The Comag SL30 is 12v/240v so can be run off EHU without any problems.:thumb:

    If you have an HD TV with an HDMI port perhaps you could consider one of these.

    Not much bigger than a cigarette packet, so very small and extremely lightweight. It runs on 12v and 230V and gives you HD pictures from all satellites.

    The Comag version here is £99.99, but includes an additional LNB with LED's.

    I bought the Dyon version (Identical) of the receiver on its own from here for £59.99, full EPG and PVR option as well...

    A great little receiver,......:thumb::thumb:

    Depends on the model. I have 12v / 240v sky box but they are not cheap and not easy to find in good nick.

    Yes, You will just need a small invertor to power the 230V Skybox when you are off hook up...:thumb:
