    Not sure if we need it yet but looking at having a satellite system on the van. Started looking at the Avtex Snipe then got advised it would not be great idea to have one permanently outside mounted on the roof which is where we would like to put one.

    So was then advised that the SatFi RV was a better but more expensive option as it is designed to be permanently outside mounted on the roof.

    If we decide to fit one of these satellite receivers we would like something that is easy to use. No messing around and no having to keep getting it in and out of a case and putting away. So that kinda rules out having an Avtex and using it as a non fixed device.

    OR what are the other alternatives ? Auto find and tune is essential.

    Thanks !

    Had the Snipe on the van we just sold, :( could not fault it, small size so really only ok for UK and near Europe will be getting another one soon. :)

    We plan to put a sat dish on our new to us MH before next summer's trip to France. The Snipe keeps popping into our heads as it seems very reasonably priced, although our MH dealer wouldn't install; he only offers the dome ones. You say "near Europe". How far into France have you used it, and which model did you go for. We would want it to be self-seeking.

    We have an 85cm Oyster Vision 2 dish on our PVC, transferred from our previous vans. We get all sky channels as far down as Alicante (well we did in April this year), and only lose BBC, ITV, CH4 & CH5 in southern France. Just make sure we are not blocked by trees, switch on the Sky box, press the button on the Oyster & after a bit of spinning we are on!
