Unfortunately our new house is in a valley in Island Bay, Wellington, that can't receive terrestrial signals so I'm looking to get a satellite setup.

I suppose I want a receiver with a dual-tuner, and USB storage (eg, plug in an USB HDD) would be good. Other than that I'm not too picky -- any recommendations?

This receiver does a very nice job.

Means the unit can plug a computer cable into it which allows a computer to connect and view the saved programs on the units hard drive.

I was insinuating 100Mbps isn't "super fast", since 1000Mbps/1Gbps was released a while back ;)

A bit obtuse originally, but I got the point second time around.
