I'm getting ready to get hooked up with Globecast TV for Setanta and some international programming (German and Polish).

I have a 26" Dish ready and am also looking for a Free To Air receiver that will also work with Globecast TV card.

Please help me choose the right IRD.

Thank you

Depends where you are in the county if a 26" dish will work reliably for you or not, have a look at the below links. Look at the BEAM on IA-5 then Sadouns link to tell you what size you will need in your location.

I am THINKING about subbing to Sentana myself fot the SPL games : ) I have a spare Globecast system to use for it!

Whoops forgot to add I would use a Globecast receiver as if/when they move to MPEG4 they 'should' give you a MPEG4 compatible receiver............. I hope!

Many German TV customers are getting rid of their Globecast systems RIGHT NOW!
