    I'm looking for a lower cost meter around $100 This would be used for FTA mostly. Is having a dual input really that important?

    I have found;

    Digisat II $68
    Digisat III $98
    Digisat 3 Pro $110
    Acutrac 22 $90
    Acutrac 22 Plus $115

    Input on these? Thanks.

    With the same incremental difference in performance. As a long time professional, I would prefer not to install without the Birdog.

    For DirecTV or Dish Network, I still prefer the old Digisat II.

    I don't think dual inputs are important. It might be useful if you're installing a multiple LNB dish, but even then not so much. As an installer with E*, I always pick one satellite to peak, then check the others to make sure the signal is adequate. The one thing I appreciate is a self-powered meter, so you can make sure you have a line of sight before before you run all that cable. I still use an old Eagle Aspen analog meter :lol: , but I have used the Sat Buddy and liked it a lot.
