    Default Dish Selection


    Dear Friends,

    I am looking to buy a new dish for Hotbird. I am based in Lahore. In the market there are two types of dishes - 8ft solid and 5 1/2 feet offset dish. I will be thankful if someone guides me as to which option I should go for and what price range should I be looking for.

    Cheers

    Umair

    Default Thanks

    Thanks to everyone for helping me out.

    The only question that is confusing me that the Hall Road vendors say that 5 1/2 **** offset dish is better in performance compared to 8 ft solid dish. Is this true or just a marketing gimmick

    i think satellite shop owners are true
    becoz they are doing Dish installation job perfectly..
    I think u have to buy a dish by the help of satellite Installer becoz they are doing that job..
    Contact with dish installer and ask him about better solution for HOTBIRD
    thats all
    take care.
