Hi aagain, still undecided which sytem to purchase. My main interest is spanish channels. With my 12' bud and analog receiver is the captive works cw500 fta receiver a good option at $99 free shipping? Do I need c-band lnbf or ku-band for spanish channels, what name brand?

All receivers do both C and KU band.

C-Band 4 digit Freq.

Ku-Band 5 digit freq.

Never tried one or even installed one! I much prefer the Traxis DBS 3500 and the Fortec range of receivers (IMO)

BLIND SCAN is a MUST!

The Captiveowrks units dont have a true blind scan for the feeds. I highly recommend one with a true blind scan (Pansat, Fortec, Traxis)

Most of Satmex5 is on C-Band so you should be all set with what you have now

Thanks again but I think lightning burnt my lnbf. Since I'm going to get new lnbf, is the chaparral corotor II wideband good choice? Any suggestions?

Hello
Like Iceberg said, it does not have blind scan. I bought one and I'm very disapointed by that. It take hours to scan (no kidding).

Personnaly, I connected a pansat 3500 on my bud, it has component and toslink outputs. I also tried viewsat extreme. Both units are great.
