BUD 4DTV and FTA
Hi, this is my first post to the forum. I have a 10 foot dish with C-Band and KU-Band capabilities. Everything is working fine with this sytem. Any recomendations on a FTA receiver? I presume I would slave it to my 4DTV and let the 4DTV receiver change satellites? Any advice would be most appreciated.

Hello and WELCOME to the SatelliteGuys.US FTA forum!
I love my new Traxis DBS 3500, I also use the Fortec Classic NA, have a look at our review area for more ideas!
Both receivers can be slaved together with just a short run of coax, the down side being you are stuck on the same polarity as the master.
There are other ways to do it................................

I would second the vote for the Traxis 3500. Got mine a few weeks back and tied it into my existing system (922 + coship 2300b) and it proved its cost effective, works well, and is clueless electronic wife friendly. Whatever you do be sure to go for a unit that is blind search capable.

You say there are other ways to do it? I'm not thrilled about being stuck on the same polarity. Is there any other way besides getting another dish? I once had a Monty 95 slaved to my 4DTV, but eventially got rid of the Monty because it was a pain. I forget now if I had that same restriction. It's been a while. I guess I'm not a lot different from most in this forum. If my family can't easily use it, then it won't get used.
Thanks for the link on how to hook it up to the 4DTV. It seems familiar. I guess that's probably the way I had my Monty slaved.
