When I first looked at getting a satellite system I began by reading lots of posts, but the more I read the more confused I became.. :Sad: and I couldn't justify or afford an 'all singing all dancing' auto system Too much information and buzz words I didn't understand, .. so in the end I bought a cheap suitcase kit from Maplins and started to play.. Though a process of trial and error I got it working and started to understand what some of the buzz words meant.. eventually I could have this little dish up and running in just a few minutes.. As we were going abroad, I decided to upgrade to a 65cm dish.. nothing fancy, just a plain domestic dish. This worked great, it clamped onto the rear ladder and still using the same digi box that came with the suitcase we had TV everywhere we went.. then I bought the Maxview crank up.. no more climbing up ladders to align, great reception , but not so good in high winds.. but that's another story.. I like being manual, I don't worry about all the techno stuff, I put the dish up and listen for a signal .. in Morocco I put up the dish and found Nile Sat .. Arabic TV but with plenty of English movies and news.. So, if you are being put off getting a dish either because you don't understand or think you need to spend lots of money.. don't be, you can be up and running for under £100 .. or if you want to spend a little more and have a Maxview dish on a tripod it's still under £200 . Cheap dishes and digital tuners can be found at Maplins..
