I'm in need of some advice... I'm looking to purchase a FTA system with most if not all the bells and whistles I would like anybody with real expertise to look at this list of potential components and make some recommendations before I start ordering stuff. What I'm after is a 1m motorized dish, a receiver with auto search, for FTA (and others). I know a 1m may be overkill but I'm in Texas (when it rains it pours!) This system only needs to feed only one TV (no known need for additional LNB's)

Antenna- Weingard DS-3101
Drive Motor- Moteck SG2100
Receiver- ??? possibly one of the following-
Hyundai HSS-800CI, BEC DB6600+CI, PANSAT 2500, PANSAT 500CI
LNB- ASC321-2 Universal Ku band or a ASC321S-2

If you see any flaws in this configuration (or I forgot something) or even suggest something better Id appreciate it!

Also how good are the PCI receiver cards? (good, bad, ugly)?

I'm using a Winegard 30" dish, an ExpressVu LNB (the old style) and a Pansat 1500.

Another option for a receievr is the Satwork 3688. It has a search and will control a motor, too :)

What do you mean by others? Its either FTA or its a subscription

Get the biggest dish you can use right away. I have a 30" and want a 1m
