Can anyone recommend a freesat recorder for use in southern Portugal? I currently have a sky+ box and a 1m dish but no sky subscription so I cant record. I can receive most channels ok, loose a few at night such as itv2. But I dont have any problems with bbc1. The default bbc 1 is yorks and lincs, is that in the 2D beam? What is the best channel to check for freesat reception on a sky box? Do any of the boxes work better than the others with lower signal strengths? Can the boxes with iplayer work through a proxy server so I can get around the geo location? Iplayer works fine on my Wii through a proxy server Sorry for lots of questions in one thread. Thanks in advance.
