What do you want to know? Check out Global Communications - Mike has all the info you need, and is an honest guy. Lots of video - most of it non-english, and lots of audio -- sort of like the old shortwave days, but with stereo, music, etc. E-mail me privately with specific questions.

Thanks for reply. I want a basic receiver to get the mepg2 and dvb. Looking at a pansat receiver. It seams a blind search type is best to find the hidden signals. I would guess it would be best to get a HH mount with at least a 30" dish for the KU feeds. Thanks for lead to Global I will check then out.

I like the Satwork receivers as they have the blind search, thats what I use, I also have the BEC-2000 that drives the motor on my dish, there is a lot more up there than you would think, including local channels, music, sports, HDTV and news feeds, a lot of fun for the buck, the systems are really cheap, just watch out who you get to install it as the regular directv/dish installers dont carry the correct signal meter for ku band installs! The great thing about a motorized system is that one dish can work for all satellites on the Clarke belt. Check my web site for a picture of my motor mount! One more thing, the bigger the dish the better, I recommend a 1 meter dish, any smaller and you will regret it, but its a great hobby! Have fun, any problems with the install drop me a line and I will talk you through it!
