I am a new guy on the horizon of FTA. I am interested in buying the FTA pacakage.
I have browsed at Gosatellite.net for many packages. At the moment, I am interested in stationary package. How about the Viewsat 2000 extreme or CW 600s
Premium with satellite Finder??

How about a Fortec system from Sadoun?

What channels and satellites are you going for?

I have posted this before...I bought an Extreme BEFORE discovering this forum...WISH I HAD FOUND THE FORUM 1ST! It works but is very quirky! As PSB said...there are better and the sponsers here are really supportive too!

Luckily, My FTA set was attached to a functioning BUD so I did not need too much help...(when I did, Pete and Iceberg were there to help!:D

Listen to the fine folks here...read reviews... and make an intelligent decision....SUPPORT MUST ALSO BE CONSIDERED!!! You are getting advice from the best in the Business here!:)

BUT DON'T TELL THEM I SAID THAT....:D :D :D

Good Luck (waiting to unload my Extreme on Ebay when HD comes out in force!)

What do you want for the Extreme? I've had pretty decient luck with them if you learn how to work around the quirks.

Until Coolsat or another manufacturer comes with a HD FTA set that is affordable with the NEW HDMI connectors...(the ones that are not out yet) I am going to sit tight!

When something comes...then I will move...Not like it doesn't work...I just want better!

Mainly, I am interested in International channels and IA5 Satellite. What do you meany by quirky?? Is it hard to setup or install?? How is CW-600S. I read a good review on Gosatellite.

As pointed out a few times already today, a receiver with TRUE blind scan is a MUST have feature!

I wonder if that is my review :)

The CW600 is a nice box but doesn't have a true blind scan to find the new frequencies. If all you are looking for is IA5, then it probably isnt needed.

IA5 isnt really hard to set up since there is a ton of stuff on there.

The extreme does not have a quailty meter on screen with reference numbers like the Coolsats do. If you want the reference numbers...you have to go to instation settings. 2( the newest factory firmware has messed up my real time clock...biggest quirk seems to be its usals implimentation...just does not work correctly. I am lucky in that I usa a 4dtv + bud for positioning. Also think the interface is a pain...BUT IT DOES WORK! (as does hardware blindscan (extreme only)
