For now I'm only using two. My Sonicview 8000 for blindscanning and the AZbox Elite which I'm stilled getting used to (only had it for a week). At some point I may get the gremlins worked out of my Coolsat 8100 and hook it up in the bedroom, but for the time being it's not in use.
I selected 2-3 (I use two Visionsat IV-200s and a Digitrans 7150 regularly), but upon reading the thread further, I realized that I forgot to include PCI cards (at times up to two in service concurrently). These numbers also change periodically, depending on whats going on (Space Shuttle mission, etc.)...
At present I have 2) VS MaxHD 2) Pansat 250sm and 1) Pansat 3500 SD all up and running . Star Trak 400 , 3)3500sd 1) Ariza 700 and a Fortec Star Lifetime Ultra just laying around waiting for more TVs in the house .......lol
Currently I have connected:
1 Pansat 2700A to a Winegard 76 cm and a 10.5' /cosmos dish for C band
1 Pansat 3500SD to a GeosatPro 90 cm
1 Coolsat 5000 to a GeosatPro 90 cm and a 10.5' Cosmos dish for C band
1 Coolsat 8000 slaved to the Coolsat 5000
In the closet for now are 2 Traxis 3500's
I've been "promised" another receiver, but can't remeber for the life of me what kind. I do remember the guy said it had a built-in DVR. I think it's loaded with firmware I have no desire to have/use. If I get it, I hope to find replacement firmware (I know this great place for help in getting the thing back like it's supposed to be - - - -).
Embarrassed to admit, I only have one, unless I can also count the dish 942 I use for OTA and NASA (that and angel one are the only FTA satellite it will get so I guess it doesn't count). I'm holding off on any others till I have time to research a box that works as good as the one I have but also does HD and DVB-S2, and/or have time to figure out how to build a media center PC with satellite tuners.
