In UK Screwfix are offering a satellite system for 75.00 including 60cm dish, receiver, LNB, wall mount, controller and cable, I know you are not going to get UK sky but will it work in NC, it is HD and SD digital (whatever that means) was thinking about bring one out with me, what do you reckon?

I can only find THIS :



http://www.screwfix.com/prods/80878/Electrical-Supplies/TV-Range/Aerials-Fixings/Labgear-Free-to-Air-Satellite-Kit



@ 30 GBP



and this:



http://www.screwfix.com/prods/35628/Electrical-Supplies/TV-Range/Aerials-Fixings/Labgear-Portable-Satellite-Kit @ 80 GBP



Neither of these system offer HD ( SD is standard definition - as opposed to HD high def. )



Any HD receiver in CY -if turned to a BIG dish ( well installed, good quality 1.8m )would only get ITV HD



BBC HD can't be received via sat in CY, and C4 is scrambled - only a SKY HD receiver -with a working subscription card or a Freesat from SKY viewing card - cost 20 GBP will work



When Five goes HD, it will also require a viewing card :(



The SD version of the receiver MIGHT pick up BBC interactive - if it has a red button facility on the remote..ITV reception in CY on a 1.8m requires a SKY card.. this receiver will therefore be USELESS for ITV/ C4 / Five.



Sorry :(

Peter - you probably CAN use this receiver to view Nilesat - and if you get a 1m dish you'll get 7 or so watchable eng lang channels without any subscriptions.

Mark this offer came through on flier through my letter box (do you remember them)

It gives a catalogue number of 98603-57 and was originally priced at 159.99, but thanks for info, it just depends on how much the package weighs as to bringing it out, or else the ayotolla will have to cut down on her knickers.

I don't know how good the tuner in the receiver is, but it is a good price for UK users who want BBC and ITV HD and accept they won't get any channel five and not C4 in HD...
