    Going to order a Maxview tomorrow from SDS in Barnstaple as there cheapest:BigGrin:
    but dont know which one is the easiest to set up(align) the Omnisat Semitronic
    or the Crank up? I already have a blank plate on the roof where one was on before, which I think may of been a crank one as the hole in the cabinet roof is not against the wall.
    Your views please.

    Cheers

    I had the crank up one on my Hurricane which I've just traded in. It worked very well, 9 times out of ten I could find satellite in about a minute and although the dish can be moved with a strong wind I never had that problem. I also had the Maxview tuner which had a built in tuning scale and tone which was very useful.
    The whole setup is around £ 500 new I believe so it is a balance of cost between this and a more elaborate auto setup which would cost around £1100.
    You takes your choice :Smile:
