The FTA receiver will pick up the channels you want. HOWEVER, to move the dish you need the older analog receiver since that has the capability to move the dish and get the polarity right. The FTA receiver cant move a big dish by itself and if the LNB is an older one, the receiver may be able to control polarity. It needs to have a Polorotor option.

If you want just one satellite, I’d get a different LNB. Get one that a FTA receiver can control. Check out www.dmsiusa.com for the C-band LNB that a lot of us use.

I'd look for something like this (for analog recever)

C band reciever
C/KU receiver
C receiver

for a FTA receiver (DVB) check the sponsers at the top of the page. Either Sadoun or gosatellite has the DVB recievers

Are you looking for stuff just on one satellite or more than one?

I think I remember one of the Sponsers having an analog receiver, don't remember which one. If none of the sponsers at the top have any, I believe Mike Kohl might have some analog receivers. Look here:
http://www.global-cm.net/
Also, http://www.skyvision.com/ have them, but they are generally high. There are other places too. Don't be shy, look around. Do a search as Iceberg suggested.

you may want to search for a IRD which is what most analog receivers is called look for brand names such as uniden,drake,motorola,general instruments. as for moving the dish you could get a v box dish mover to work with fta receiver disqec1.2. and you could get a c band lnbf that you can control with fta receiver. or ku lnbf depends on if you want c band channels or ku channels.or wait till the cku lnbf comes out.:)
