Foreign Satellite


Well-known Member
The misses speaks spanish and portugese and I was thinking upgrading my Sky dish to be a little bigger and have 2 LMBs so one can point at Hispasat or Astra1 with foreign content.

Other than the actual dish installation / alignment etc (I can get this done) how easy would it be to setup via a HTPC. I am assuming that the Nova DVB-S card would do the job here and just needs a feed from the LMB ??


Pretty easy. I've got 3 lnb feeds going to a 4-1 DiSEqC switch, Astra & Hotbird etc. Once set up, selection is automatic.

Loads of sat apps out there, DVB Viewer, DVB Core, DVB Portal just to name a few. Testing an MCE plug-in at the moment............looking good :thumbsup: .
