    Finally, I have a dish.

    Looks to me that the "bigger part" of the arm is 24". Anyone using a mesh dish with C/Ku LNBF ? I've heard the holes can't be too big.

    C-band HD channels

    Is it possible to sub some HD channels on C-band? I found Discovery I think... is that all? Any movie channels? I guess you can get some feeds and PBS on FTA right? ( I'll move soon to the country where I can install my BUD)

    Need opinions on that dish

    Need opinions on that dish

    haha.. I plan to be happy yes! Ok, thank you. I''ll be patient then and wait to find a free one. The 922 is taking a big part of the budget too! But it seems to worth it.
