Had an email from a seller based in France who I bought a Fransat card a couple of years back. Never did have much luck with it. He tells me that it is now possible to buy a Fransat card and cam. I did an Ooogle and found a couple of places in the UK but £138, almost as much as buying the receiver and card. But I also found a French company that sells it for £88 delivered. I wonder if "she" would like it for Christmas as she speaks French and likes the history channels they do.

Is that a present for "her" or just another toy for "you" :)

Mmmm, difficult to answer that one but it is only a little extra as I already have her main present. Now you are making me feel guilty as if I was buying her a set of saucepans as a present.

They sell saucepans as well? Great ;)

Came today, quick for a delivery from Europe by standard post. Unable to read French so will wait for my personal translator before I use it and screw it up for some unknown reason.

If you like you can scan it (or tell me where to find the docs online) and I'll take a look for you.

I dunno why you are buying a card, some of the fransat channels on 5w are FTA, If you live along the south coast of England you can easily get french terrestrial tv with a TV aerial which will also allow you to pick up belgian tv which is also french (mostly). There's also swiss/french tv on hotbird which I can get very cheaply, message me for details.

If you've already bought everything maybe you should bare this in mind for when it runs out. I live in Bournemouth too, give me your address and i'll give you a whack with your saucepans :D metaphorically speaking, je ne parle pas francais.

To late now but it would take me a day to run the coax from my den to the roof with a new aerial. Next summer I am fitting a fixed dish with 2 extra cables for satellite and I can think about it then.

Thanks but her in the front room read it out to me and told me I can alter the language to English on the cam. Now just have to see if I can get one of the previuosly scrambled channels.
