    Visionsat IV200 PVR Plus

    Great review. I read some earlier discussion about timers. Any thoughts on whether this is one of the better receivers for setting timers? I'm considering picking up a Fortec Dynamic, but being able to set a good number of timers with flexibility for the recurring days is important so maybe...

    GEOSATpro SL2-Bullet LNBF - Review

    Thanks Iceberg, I've been away a long time so I'm slowly catching up on threads. Any dish that I add would be a max of 1M so I'll rule this out. I'm also not handy enough to do customized modifications. It would be nice to have G18 and AMC21 together but it's not a huge issue considering the...

    GEOSATpro SL2-Bullet LNBF - Review

    Any thoughts on whether this might work for sats 2-degrees apart on a 1M dish? I'm thinking to put up a second non-motorized dish this summer and if I could get G18 and AMC21 on one dish that would be king!

    Legacy 500 LNB work for FTA?

    Anything is possible, why not give it a try? I've heard of that combo on a 20" dish, but 18" might be pushing it.

    Legacy 500 LNB work for FTA?

    They're typically referred to as a 'monoblock' and as was mentioned, they don't offer much in the realm of FTA. Considering your signature shows that you have a Dish500 pointing at 110/119 then must be using one already. 110/119 are the only satellites worth pointing at with a monoblock for...

    I don't mean to brag...

    While we're keeping things positive, I thought I'd throw in a few comments. I was reading a book about Ansel Adams that I got for my birthday (15th birthday + 21 years of experience) and I learned that he started taking landscape pictures at around 14 years old. I doubt he went around...

    Pansat 9200 review?

    I recall from the Dr. Dish review a while back that he stated channel changes were not to swift. I'd like to hear your opinion once you're up an running.

    Why wont 18 inch dish work for FTA?

    Wow, great response. Welcome to SatelliteGuys! It's a wonder that the DTH companies can take a multi-million dollar satellites, spend millions to launch them into orbit and then charge a similar price as other providers (cable company, etc) to make up their ROI. Any thoughts on why some...

    Is there FTV (free to view) in North America?

    And unfortunately too late to the trough because the other 'hogs' are already eating up all the food.

    Why wont 18 inch dish work for FTA?

    I'd like to rehash Mike's question a bit. Is a satellite high-powered by design (e.g. more expensive to build), or is because they burn more energy (solar only?) and therefore have a shorter lifespan? Obviously what I'm getting at here is, what's to stop non-subscriber satellites from being as...

    Pansat 9200HD PVR Update

    I have a Series1 TiVo that I'm not using any more because I got a PVR with my cable subscription. I've keep planning to connect it to my FTA system and get it to record day and night. Then I'd purposely leave it on a channel that I wouldn't regularly watch to find out if there's something good...

    Pansat 9200HD connections on the back

    Good luck bud :) I'm sure there's an excellent truck performance board out there just waiting for you. :up

    A little tip!

    Ha, sweet. I guess going from memory is not one of my strong points :) Probably an indication that it's not a channel I watch regularly either.
