    @ the mo I have a Humax F1-vaci with a 88cm dish. But I'll be buying a motor and a dreambox (if it turns out to be OK) or a similar Diseqc 1.2 receiver.
    Just wondering how difficult it is to fit the motor, align the dish and install the receiver?

    cheers

    Hello again your 88cm dish should get you the main satellites Astra's Hotbirds etc so keep the dish for now.You can also buy a digital Diseqc HtoH mount and if the F1via has this Diseqc function it should move the dish with just a signal down the lnb cable so no other cable is required.You select the channel and the dish moves,it's a little difficult to set up but plenty of peeps here to help you if you have any probs m8.
    The price of a digital HtoH mount is around £80-£90 I think.You can find a bit more info about the mount [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    thanks m8, I believe the F1-vaci only supports diseqc 1.0..so I need a new receiver, unless any motors can work with it?
