NO!!!

Hence my new dish, lnbs, h265 sat meter. I got them in the summer but retardedness got in the way of installation, so it will be spring and hopefully a cheap 4k tv as well.

Might even try to squeeze in an extra dish, you can get green and brick red ones now so with a 16 way switch I might just get away with it.
My receiver is a twin tuner (Technisat Technibox UHD),however as the tuners are connected to different dishes,it limits the Picture in Picture feature
only works with certain channels and you only get audio on one channel at the same time
My Vantage 8000S,I think will show up to 16 channels at a time,but I really dislike the whole interface of the receiver,I rarely use it

RTP Madeira is now on air with their NYE coverage, probably lots of talking until midnight. P.S. Their stream is Chromecast-friendly!

I use any old cheap rx for the motorized dish and rely on several computers with pcie cards for the fixed dishes. Low power SoC MATX like Intel Goldmont Plus are recommended. You can replace any old CPU cooler with a silent metal lump, it will clock down a bit (tell it there is no fan in the BIOS). It is worth making it silent because you don't need any cpu processing power, the power draw is so low the cpu fan can seem very loud.

LOL at the girl in Madeira tooting her horn.

Loondon has just learnt how to use drones years after Pyongyang!
