1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Rather than buying all that equipment would a subscription not have been cheaper as all sky services are secure and generally most other providers on other sats are secure so what are you expecting to watch when you purchased thees items?

There are very few channels available without a subscription these days. A few minor packages come and go, ORF Austria was prised open recently although they are already making plans to screw it down again by a card swap out.

If you are hoping for free Sky UK forget it - if it was possible we would all be doing it.

Basically you will get the free channels on your chosen satellites.

How do you intend to install your dish? Direct to the wall on a short pole stub or a pole mounting taking the dish over your apex to enable the dish to freely move around the whole satellite arc (or as much as possible considering any obstacles that might impede your line of sight).

Regarding the TD, you might as well forget using your Funcards, as stated, there's very little availabe, particularly films and sport outside of a subscription.

A Diablo 2 Cam will get you a few choice channels on Bulsat 39E, and TNTFrance on 19E. You would need a Duolabs CAM programmer for that though.
