    Default Hello!

    Hello!

    just signed up and looking to know a bit more about IPTV subs.

    been a member of a few other sites around the web but mainly dealing with F5S and VU+ boxes.

    think I've just about mastered Sat services so it's onto IPTV now.

    I have a fair bit experience in the Satellite side of things,
    having previously worked for a certain 3 lettered, well known satellite company in the UK
    (I'm sure you all know who that is!) so IP is a bit of a new challenge. Thinking of buying a MAG250 and experimenting around with it over the next few weeks so if anyone has any tips or hints they'd be very much appreciated!

    look forward to learning a lot from this forum, seem to be a lot of intelligent folks on here!

    Please read your welcome message before proceeding, also the rules pertaining to ant sections which might interest you. .
    If at first you don't succeed.....redefine success. . . .

    The humour here is sarcasm, we thrive on it!

    The Rules for each section are stickied threads.

    Great intro and welcome to DF.

    You haven't made enough posts. . .CLARIFICATION: enough USEFUL and apposite posts, please don't take this as an invite to post loads of rubbish to boost your post count, you will simply be banned. Many of our rules are in place to stop leeches and spammers, you will need to settle in and then become a part of the community, COMMUNITY first and resource second.
    This is the last attempt to communicate to you what most others seem to understand just from reading their Welcome message and posts from staff (see the post from Mickey above)
    I think I now understand why you didn't see that "ant sections" was a typo on my part (should have been 'any') as you are looking for Aerial/Antenna related posts, the fact is you don't have enough posts, if you join in and become a contributing member it will be worth your while, if you can't be arsed? fine. . .we'll manage!!

    Well worth your while to take the advice and sticking around mate. You won't find a more friendly and helpful bunch of people anywhere else on the net. It's the rules and the ever vigilant staff that helps to keep it the friendly and helpful community that it is. (">

    Thanks to BigBird

    See what you're saying but how do I build up useful posts if I cant post?

    For what it's worth I do have a fair bit of experience in Satellite and Aerial installation and troubleshooting and have helpful and relevant things to add and to help other members out. I have tried again to find the forum rules that you have referred to but can't - If i click on "Forum Rules" at the bottom right of this page there isn't anything remotely like what your post suggests.

    bottom line is we are all here for the same reason, to educate one another? just seems like it's difficult to help

    Thanks to connormill

    If you read your initial Private Message when you signed up (and abide by it) then you will fit in well !!!!

    Lots of good info on here causes a lot of leeching hence the caution but if that's not you then enjoy the forum that is DF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There is an initial daily limit, be patient and you'll be fine.
