My mum has a satellite dish aligned to hotbird and currently receives a few Italian channels e.g. Rai 1 and Rai 2. Sometimes the channels are scrambled. She has had her receiver box a long time and i was wondering whether it would be worthwhile purchasing a new box to take advantage of a greater selection of Italian channels. She would also like to receive channels in an additional room in the house. Any advice please.

Christina, see earlier posts in this thread. If you get a tivu box and register it to a codice civil in Italy, you will be able to receive all the tivu channels without the scrambling nuisance. Search on Italian websites for more info on tivu.

hello,
i want to get italian tv in the uk
i currently just have a basic aerial installed and no dish.
was just wondering how big does the dish need to be to get hot bird 13e and could i just use a basic freesat box from the uk and get all the channels or would i have to get the tivusat box to get all the channels?
also would a portable dish work through double glazing and how big would it have to be

thank you

hello
also, could a cisco 4585dvb hd box that i don't use anymore from virgin media cable be used as a set top box to get the channels through a fitted dish pointing towards hot bird.

thank you

Robbie : A 60cm dish with any standard satellite receiver will receive many Italian channels from Hotbird at 13°E, but not all and some programmes will be blanked out. A registered tivu box is necessary to receive all the main channels all of the time. See previous postings in this thread. I am not familiar with the Cisco box, but a cable receiver would not be suitable.
