hi, well where do i start, which satelite and where do i find it in the sky. Reason being is that i still have my old dish mounted on the wall from the analogue days which was conected to an amstrad receiver. Is it possible to use the dish (i guess it will need an uptodate LNB, but i am guessing) and is the satelite in a nearbye part of the sky so i don't have to remout the dish on another part of my house. Have noticed some cheap Fortec receivers in Maplins and on the internet, are these any good.? will be looking to receive HD images so understand that the receiver must be capable of that which makes them a little more expensive.
Any fed back will be greatly appreciated.
