I'll cut to the chase.
My Dad is after getting some serious satellite hardware, on the "feed-hunting" side of things. He already has Sky Digital, and is well aware that he'll need to ditch the Sky mini-dish. He's been clueing himself up on it for months now (reading the magazines at Smiths on his lunchbreak!). Old people are so cute. :
The point of this thread is to see what hardware you seasoned hunters are using, and in what price range we'd be looking at to get a similar set-up. Obviously we're talking a nice STB and a motorised dish to begin with. The hard part for us is "which"?
He wants to be able to view most if not all of the feeds listed on the 'Feed Hunters' forum. Not something that will only be able to sweep a small postage-stamp sized part of the sky.
So, for those who couldn't be arsed to read the above: What gear do we need to hunt for feeds?
And: Can you keep your $ky Digital setup as well?
Thanks guys, and sorry about the "cut to the chase" bit... it kinda got out of hand.
