    Smile out of the loop

    Hi guys!
    I been out of the loop for quite a while.
    I have been reading a lot of posts on what is what on Sat systems. There is so much info and so much that takes you in ten different directions.

    I tossed a lot of old hardware not to long ago figuring its all useless.. kinda made me sad.. lol

    Just a question for anyone that could chime in..

    I was just wondering?? if you had to start from scratch today.. to set up a FTA ,C-band or PowerVu system or an IKS..??

    What would be the best route to go.. I don't mind getting new hardware or doing some more reading..
    I don't want my hand held.. just a nudge to go in a productive direction would be appreciated..

    Thanks in advance.

    I always liked my viewsatMAX (with HD TP's updated) and my 33 inch dish with motor and using a INVACOM QUAD QPH031 lnb. I still have it and might just bring it out one day to play with.

    I've put my dishes away for winter, i've only kept 2 for 91+82 and 110+119 with my linkbox 9000i and freesat v7hd.

    Last summer i had a 6ft solid dish for c band! It's awesome but if i had to make a choice i would stick to iks.

    If you want a cheap system and a good choice of programming i would get an 18" dish + freesat v7hd.

    A lot depends on what size dishes you have

    Default thanks guys!

    Thanks for all the replies folks.. I appreciate the help..

    Ive really missed having a sat system and all the fun that goes with the set up and building interface cables and software updates and all.

    I still have a 18" with dual LNB..

    I will probly have to order a new STB. I'll check the ones mentioned in here..
    I tossed a lot of stuff. I really didn't think anything was up..
    Where does one find firmware these days for said STB's? I have a large list of old site that are long gone..

    I'll see what I can find for STB and check back in.

    Thanks again for the friendly nudge..

    Regards

    The GT Media V8's are nice receivers and cheap too.
