    First off find out what satellites are easily reached via a standard sized dish, good starting point is Lyngsat

    From there you can decide what sort of reciever (analogue/digital) you will need and then if you will need to purchase a CAM for the encrypted channels.

    Be advised many local councils do not allow two dishes on a house and given the over zealous nature of council busy bodies you might end up having wasted your money.
    Nothing stopping you from replacing the minidish with a larger one and mounting a second LNB onto that.

    Useful site for dish/lnb information.. Satcure

    Have a look here for some ideas.If you want some specific questions addresed then either leave them in the thread or p.m me with them and i'll leave them in a specialised forum for some of the experts to answer.I know there is a lot of satellite activity which can be taken advantage of but be aware that a lot of it might be inappropriate or offensive.
