    My old C-band system consisted of a 10' Unimesh Perf dish (perferated sheet rather than expanded aluminum) with a Toshiba TXR-2200 receiver. I was set up for C and Ku band and enjoyed it much. The last time I went past the house, about two years ago, the dish was still up in the air pointing to the arc.

    Your 4 dtv receiver allows you to subscribe to satellite programming with the big dish. Check out NPS for subscription prices http://www.callnps.com/packages.htm

    That's a nice dish setup. My favorite package would be the movie lovers, it beats both D* and E* hands down:

    I use my 10m dish like the one you pictured, to watch PBS-HD, ABC-HD, all the NASCAR races with no commercials, NASA HD coverage, and LOTS of Fox stations during football season to save me the cost of Sunday Ticket (although the Foxes are all SD).

    A new 10' like that one costs upwards of $1000 now, plus shipping, so you should be able to sell it locally fairly easily if priced right. A FTA receiver for it runs about $100 for SD or $400 for HD.

    List of channels available at gofastmotorsports.com, and ftalist.com.
