Hi xafalcon
Update from New Plymouth.
Now have a GTMedia V8X receiver which works really well on chan 9 mux - getting 83% quality in most weather- drops off below 79% in rain etc.
As you say not as sensitive as the x1000 but it does the job - and has the added plus of auto rolling biss and powervu ( not powervu + ) .
Happiness is a working satellite receiver 🙂
Good receiving everyone.
