      28.2E and 28.5E - most of the Astra 2's and Eurobird 1.

      ok, and if I want to receive from 19,2E and 13.0E would I be better off buying a seperate dish, or adding LNBs to my existing Sky dish.

      I would have thought my existing sky dish wouldn't be large enough. If I was buying a second dish, I assume I could use two LNBs to pick up 19.2E and 13.0E - is this right? What size dish would I need? 60cm? 80cm?

      You can get 19.2 and 13.0e on a 60cm with an arm if you are in the south, 80cm in the north. If you want them all on 1 dish, take a look at the Wavefield 55cm force frontier torroidal dish. It can recieve a 42 degree range of satellites. It creates a focal line rather than a focal point and are a great fixed dish alternative to a motorised system.

      Ok cheers.

      What would be a good low end receiver to use, which has a record feature (like Sky+)?

      You won't get a similar receiver functionality to Sky+. The EPG data for Sky is in a non DVB standard so can't be used by third party receivers. The only data the box can use is the now next info which only applies to the transponder you are currently using.
      I used to use an 80cm dish with a monobloc lnb to look at Astra 1 and Hotbird

      So the only way to record from the Astra/HotBird dish is via a VCR??
