I am thinking about buying the one room system. I know I can set it up, as I setup my direct tv in the past. But I was wondering what other channels would I get if I bought a motor, and does that FTA receiver command the motor?

I am thinking about buying the one room system. I know I can set it up, as I setup my direct tv in the past. But I was wondering what other channels would I get if I bought a motor,
here is a list of 24/7 channels on KU
http://www.global-cm.net/MPEGlistKuBandUS.html

There are lots of sports & news feeds that pop up all the time

and does that FTA receiver command the motor?
the one room system receiver is a Fortec Mercury II which has blind scan (to finds the feeds that pop up) and will control a motor

Thanks for the information, Also should the standard dish that comes with this package be large enough to pick these other channel and audio feeds up?

A 36" (90 cm) dish is the recommended size for the majority of signals for KU band in North America. Some people go with a larger dish if they are located on the fringe of a satellite footprint or want better signal reliability in adverse conditions.

Dishes up to 39" / 1 meter are protected by FCC regulation for installation in HOAs, apartments, etc. Larger dish installs are subject to rules and regulations set by the HOA, city, property management.
