    Can anyone out there help me?

    I have a redundant analogue system.I have just bought a place in Spain and wondered if there was any way that I could use the system over there.I have noticed that some people have enormous dishes,whilst others have what appears to be 90cm ones.

    Your input would be greatly appreciated.

    Mick.

    Your old analogue system should work fine on the many analogue channels on Hotbird at 13 degrees East or Astra at 19 degrees E.

    Surf to www.lyngsat.com and check those 2 orbital positions to see what channels are available in Analogue FTA (Free To Air).
    Of course not many are in English - although CNN on Astra is.
    I would expect a 90 cms dish to be fine on those two birds.

    The larger dishes you saw are probably to catch Sky Digital at 28 degrees east.

    If your moving to spain then you best bet would be the hispasat satellite at 30w. You would need to buy a new box before you go, and with the right card you can program a file to give you free viewing of pay tv. I have it at home an watch more movies now than i ever have done.
