    Default Satellite Enthusiasts - How many Satelite Receivers do yous have?

    I have been at the hobby of Satellites for just over a year and I already have 4 receivers (Fortec Star 4200, Dodge Challenger 2900, Official Digitalb Kaon hd Receiver and a triax) I am just wondering how many sat receivers do the real sat enthusiasts have and what their favourite Receivers are.

    Recently switched to sat meself and already have a Maxx 1000,Dm500s,DM600s IPBox 9000HHD twin tuner and cable TGM220 converted to sat with 88cm motor setup,all that in less than a year I'd say and the next addition is gonna be the Technomate 800HD.....hopefully.
    Lot more interesting than the cable scene and plenty of skies to be scanned.

    Mine`s really boring. I have a Humax 2000 HD ci which came complete with a sh*t load of TP`s that can`t ,as far as I know, be deleted. A Technomate TM 1500 ci+ and 3 Silver Crest (Lidl special) SL65`s which I bought just to get the 80cm. dishes(works out cheaper than buying dish on it`s own) and there`s the cables included. There is very little in the way of Sat. shops over here so, the one I use in Dublin can charge what they like.

    iv had an open media for a while but recently set the sat side up, needless to say the switch has been on the sat side ever since!, looking at getting a clone dm800hd when i get the spare cash, they seem a cracking box for the money.

    Still very much the novice at this game but have a protek 9600, dm 500 and tm500. I will get an hd box soon not sure what yet though still reading.

    Mdt love your boxes mate that is quality. I was like that with cable. It was getting silly.

    dm8000 and 3 original dm500s at the mo but as others have said I had lots over the years.

    from 16 channel sky box and separate nds decoder moving into big dishes and getting receivers like an echostar sr5500 plus d2mac decoders and more recently the techomates and now onto the dm8000 - (fantastic machine by the way)

    as most other sat enthusiasts, seem to spend more time messing about rather than watching

    true m8 .. l dont think many peeps that use cable plug and play boxes have a clue about how different it is and will never get there head around it
