On the VHF can only get TV1 & 2.
1 is a tiny bit "fuzzy".
We are thinking about testing a UHF first before implementing a freeview satellite system, but as stated it is likely we will be going with sat.
It is a holiday home so we dont want to spend too much on gear.
Q: Does anyone know of a good package / kit (DIY) or places to get the gear at cheaper prices than standard retail ? (Local shops in Canterbury preferred, but would order from Auckland if was much cheaper)
Q: What is the difference between 60-90cm dishes ? (Apart from the obvious size)
Q: Is there any real difference in LNBs ( I notice some are twice the price ) ?
Q: Is there any difference in picture quality between a cheap receiver & an expensive one ?
Q: What receivers are good for the price (primarily looking for an HDMI port to connect to the TV as opposed to composite) ?
Q: For a short cable run (~20m max) will there be any noticeable difference between RG6 & RG11 ?
Q: I hear there are extra TV channels that you can get on satellite that arent on the freeview list SBS & some OZ channels ? How do I get those ?
I have only had experience setting up a Freeview Terrestrial at home which works fine on a 20-30m RG6 run using the old SKY UHF aerial.
Any tips or answers to the above questions would be most welcome. Cheers.
